Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy
Ensuring that veterans, seniors and vulnerable populations remain connected to our broader community.
Other parts of the country talk about 'supporting our troops', but in King County, we deliver results.
As part of the levy package, Executive Constantine and King County Assessor John Arthur Wilson asked the Legislature to allow local governments to exempt lower-income households of seniors, people who are retired due to disability, or veterans who have a total disability rating.
Until the Legislature acts, King County will offer full rebates to qualified seniors and people with disabilities.
Executive Constantine and Assessor Wilson will also intensify efforts to enroll eligible seniors in available property tax exemption and deferral programs.

What makes this levy different?
The next version of the levy will increase investment in proven strategies that help veterans and vulnerable populations, and add new services to support King County's rapidly growing senior population.
The levy would double investment in veterans' services, double investment in human services for vulnerable populations and add a new focus on supporting King County's growing older adult population.
