Seattle Housing Authority
SHA provides long-term, low-income rental housing and rental assistance to 37,517 people, representing 18,828 households, in the city of Seattle. SHA owns and operates 8,464 apartments and single-family homes at 364 sites throughout the city.
Additionally, SHA administers 11,925 Housing Choice Vouchers, enabling low-income tenants to receive rental assistance with other landlords in Seattle. Nearly 80 percent of those we serve are children, elderly or disabled. One in 10 students enrolled in Seattle Public Schools lives in SHA-supported housing.
We believe in providing more than housing for our tenants, and we partner with many organizations to offer an array of services and community activities to help those we serve improve their lives.
The mission of the Seattle Housing Authority is to enhance the Seattle community by creating and sustaining decent, safe and affordable living environments that foster stability and self-sufficiency for people with low incomes.
