The Seattle City Council will vote next week to strengthen zoning laws to create more affordable housing in South Lake Union, but current proposals only create units in the hundreds when the need is in the thousands. Act now to demand stronger affordable housing requirements!
Tenants Union members’ action helped to move a section of the Fair Tenant Screening Act through committee and on to the next stage towards passing. There are more opportunities to take action to support this important bill!
The Seattle Housing Authority will be having a lottery to create a new Section 8 Housing Voucher Waitlist. Anyone over 18 years of age can apply. Applications are on-line only and you can register at www.seattlehousing.org/waitlist. Registration will be open from February 4, at 7 AM until February 22 at 5 PM. If you do not have a computer, call the waitlist hotline at 206 239-1674 for a list of locations which can serve you.
