KCHA's waiting list for subsidized housing (i.e. public housing and other site-based programs) is temporarily closed. During this temporary closure, KCHA is reviewing and refining its policies and procedures related to the waiting list and transitioning to new housing-management software. All of this will position KCHA to improve its service to applicants going forward. The waiting list will reopen once the software conversion and restructuring are successfully completed.
KCHA provides rental housing and rental assistance for more than 25,000 low- and moderate-income households in 33 cities and unincorporated King County, outside of Seattle and Renton.
The agency serves as a safety net for people with the greatest housing needs, including people who are homeless, seniors, and people with disabilities living on fixed incomes. We offer a broad range of housing options to address the unique needs faced by each of these groups, which are disproportionately black, indigenous, or people of color. All of this inherently advances equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging in our community.
