County seeks applications for housing project money

Apr 12, 2017

Snohomish County is encouraging nonprofit organizations, for-profit developers, and government agencies to submit applications to develop affordable rental housing.

An estimated $1.67 million in federal and local funds is expected to be available under the HOME Investment Partnerships program – for use in the 2018 program year – and the Chemical Dependency and Mental Health (CDMH) program in 2017. Projects must benefit low-income persons in the county.

Interested applicants are invited to attend a workshop from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Monday, April 17, in the Snohomish County Robert J. Drewel Building (Administration Building East) on the county campus at 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett.

Details of eligibility and other program requirements are available in a spring 2017 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), which can be found online at wa-snohomishcounty.civicplus.com/754/Housing-Projects.

The county will accept funding proposals for multi-unit rental housing projects, homeownership development projects, and community housing development organization operating support.

Applications must be completed and returned to the Snohomish County Human Services Department by 4 p.m. May 31.

For additional information contact Jackie Anderson, the county’s manager for Housing and Community Services, at 425-388-3237 or jackiem.anderson@snoco.org.
