Affordability Portal 3.0

How might we enable those enrolling in affordability programs to submit their information to City of Seattle once and have the option to reuse their information to enroll in multiple programs?

Team: IP | Google

Problem: COVID has significantly increased the need for Affordable Seattle to streamline programs to assist residents in recovery​. We also heard from our community-based organizations (CBOs) that the need to streamline the application process is higher than ever.

Solution: Building off of the first and second phases of the Affordable Seattle portal, this project will be focusing on streamlining the application process to make it easier for residents to apply to multiple City of Seattle assistance programs without needing to re-qualify for each. The City of Seattle Innovation and Performance Team is partnering with new IAC member Google to design, build, and test a solution to enable those enrolling in programs to submit their information to City of Seattle once and have the option to reuse their information to enroll in multiple programs.
