Building a vibrant community where everyone has a stable home.

The Housing, Homelessness and Community Development Division provides both services and programs to improve the community in King County.

Though HHCDD provides some direct-service that our King County residents can access directly through individual applications, this is only a small portion of our division. Housing and Homelessness primarily serves the public through our programs that award funds to community organizations and cities through contracts--making them the primary vehicle for our services.

An equitable development initiative is coming to King County. Applications to join the working group are due May 9.
