What's Happening

HALA is working to make Seattle more affordable.

We are having citywide conversations, meeting people where they already meet in their communities and using popular technology to get input. For an overview of recent accomplishments, ongoing work, and upcoming events, download our two-page dashboard on HALA strategies. Right now, we need your input on citywide draft zoning maps to implement Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA). Join the conversation on HALA.Consider.it or talk to us in person at events scheduled until June 30. For more information on MHA, download this pamphlet.
