Conservation & Clean Energy

  • Seattle has been an example to other cities with our SeaGreen program, which is at the forefront of green, affordable housing development. The SeaGreen Guide has been used by other municipalities and national efforts in developing local programs.

    The SeaGreen materials offer rationale and suggestions for ecologically responsible practices. Understanding the SeaGreen strategies can be useful to anyone hoping to contribute to conservation of energy and materials.

  • HomeWise offers free weatherization and low-interest loans for needed home repairs, and works in partnership with low-income households to conserve energy and restore homes to safe and weather-tight condition. Both homeowners and low-income renters may be served by this program.

  • The Seattle Housing Levy, approved by Seattle voters in 2002, is a seven-year, $86 million property tax levy that provides affordable housing opportunities for low-income Seattle residents. Levy funds create and preserve affordable housing.

Smart Growth
The Office of Housing offers incentives for builders and welcomes rehabilitation of buildings already in existence.
