The need for affordable housing in the Puget Sound region is on the rise. Over the past decade, the region has seen significant population and economic growth, while the supply of affordable homes has not kept pace. As a result, homelessness remains a challenge, thousands of households spend more than half of their incomes on housing, and many households face the risk of displacement. Confronting this challenge requires a multifaceted approach, as outlined in the City of Seattleā€™s Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda. In a climate of intense competition for scarce land, one promising approach is the utilization of publicly-owned parcels for affordable housing.
