2023 Agency Achievements Report

KCHA provides community members with accessible, high-quality housing year-round. Our 2023 Agency Achievements Report (PDF) highlights the innovative and collaborative ways our agency came together in 2023 to make this possible.

2022 Household Data

As part of KCHA’s commitment to transparency and accountability, the 2022 Resident Characteristics Data Book (PDF) describes the agency’s federally subsidized households in terms of scale and geography, demographics and income, and trends related to KCHA client experience and outcomes. The book uses available administrative data to characterize as much of the client population as possible.

2022 EDIB Report

KCHA's 2022 Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Report (PDF) highlights our commitment to becoming an anti-racist, multicultural organization, both within the agency and in the communities we serve. The report outlines KCHA's progress so far and shares information about our programs, resources, people, and data, including where we are building and growing.

2022 Report to the Community

Through partnership, collaboration and innovation, the King County Housing Authority lifts communities with accessible, high-quality housing and sustainable, supportive programs. Our 2022 Report to the Community (PDF) highlights many of these important programs, some of which are often overlooked.

Affordable Housing Opportunities

Finding good, affordable housing can be a challenge.  The King County Housing Authority offers dozens of safe, well-maintained housing communities affordable to low-income households.  KCHA's subsidized housing options, including public housing, are outlined in this brochure (PDF). 

Becoming a Housing Choice Voucher Landlord

The Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher program makes private market housing affordable to eligible families by paying a significant portion of a unit’s rental cost. Property owners and managers play a critical role in the success of the Housing Choice Voucher program and addressing our region's housing crisis. Learn more about the benefits of joining this program (PDF).

The Student and Family Stability Initiative

Student homelessness is a growing problem and KCHA, Highline Public Schools, and Neighborhood House have implemented a promising solution. It's called the Student and Family Stability Initiative, KCHA's Rapid Re-Housing program. The program is designed to house and provide support to families on their way toward economic and housing stability, improve student outcomes (in particular attendance and tardiness at school) and generate cost savings for Highline Public Schools that can be redirected into educational programming.

Download the Student and Family Stability Initiative Year One Evaluation Report (PDF) or a summary (PDF) of the Student and Family Stability Initiative evaluation to learn more about how this program is meeting these objectives.
