King County Department of Human Services

The King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) manages a range of programs and services to help our county’s most vulnerable residents while working to strengthen our communities.

We believe in working as one team that solves problems—striving to be customer-focused and drive for the best results. We envision a welcoming community that is racially just because the field of human services exists to undo and mitigate unfair structures. We seek to lead the way by working as respectful and responsible stewards for our community.

King County is accepting interest forms from tenants, small landlords, large property landlords and managers, manufactured home park owners and managers, and local nonprofits who wish to participate in a new Eviction Prevention and Rent Assistance Program.

King County has created a new $41 million program to assist households economically impacted by the coronavirus.

Our region faces a looming eviction crisis of unprecedented scale. Tens of thousands of King County residents are at increased risk of eviction because of the ongoing pandemic and its effects which include illness, loss of income and unemployment.

King County is responding by rapidly deploying a new rent assistance and eviction prevention program in partnership with community organizations to help those who have been unable to meet rent obligations and are at risk for eviction.
