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.
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.
