That there is rental assistance available for Seattle and King County renters?  The Seattle City Council just approved a $22.7 million rental assistance plan, which will be distributed as follows. 

  • $8 million to United Way King County for low-income tenants.
  • $7 million for tenants in subsidized housing.
  • $6.2 million to community-based organizations serving tenants who have been disproportionately impacted because of the pandemic.
  • $1.5 million to Seattle City Light and Seattle Public Utilities to cover utility payments for low-income renters.

For these programs low income is defined as 50% of the area’s median income. For a family of four, that is $59,700.

Rental assistance through United Way is available for King County tenants who have been impacted financially by COVID-19 and are behind on rent.  Applicants are potentially eligible for nine months of rent in arrears and three months future rent.  Funds are expected to be available by May 10th and can be applied for here: https://fightpoverty.formstack.com/forms/rental_assistance_feedback_survey_copy
