The Housing Development Consortium (HDC) is kicking off King County’s first-ever Affordable Housing Week, alongside partners from across the County, to highlight the current need and potential policy solutions for preserving and creating affordable housing in cities all throughout King County. Affordable Housing Week is a new annual tradition to show why affordable housing is so important in all of our communities, and to demonstrate support for the movement to ensure that all people have the chance to live in safe, healthy, affordable homes within communities of opportunity.
Today, the Metropolitan King County Council, proclaimed May 16-22 “Affordable Housing Week.” In addition, 20 cities across King County have also signed on to Affordable Housing Week!
As part of Affordable Housing Week, HDC is holding an Elected Official Reception on Thursday, May 19 4:30 – 6:30 pm at El Centro de la Raza (2524 16th Avenue South Seattle, WA 98144). This event is open to HDC members, housing advocates, supporters, elected officials, community members and friends, and will be a great opportunity to show elected officials our strength in number and passion for safe, equitable, and affordable homes.
