2017 Annual Report
KCHA's 2017 annual report highlights the housing authority's achivements in four key areas: increasing affordable housing opportunities, expanding access to opportunity, addressing homelessness in King County, and strengthening our portfolio of affordable housing. You can also download the report in PDF format.
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, 469 KB).
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, 914 KB).
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, 1.32 MB) or a summary (PDF, 290 KB) of the Student and Family Stability Initiative evaluation to learn more about how this program is meeting these objectives.
Affordable Independent Living for Adults 55 and Over
Finding comfortable, affordable housing in your retirement can be a challenge. For people 55 or older and/or who live with a disability, and earn less than 80 percent of the area median income, you can apply to live in one of KCHA's secure, subsidized independent living communities. Download the Affordable Independent Living for Adults 55 and Over brochure (PDF, 1.63 MB) to learn more about these affordable housing options.
