The Seattle Office of Housing builds strong healthy communities and increases opportunities for people of all income levels to live in our city. For over 30 years, the City has managed investments from the Seattle Housing Levy and other state and federal sources to fund the preservation and production of affordable apartments and homes. The Office of Housing also develops policies and manages programs that support further affordable housing production. To date, nearly 12,000 affordable units have been produced and thousands of homes have been repaired or improved.
