The Puget Sound Regional Council, in tandem with the Fair Housing Center of Washington, is gathering information on barriers to equal housing opportunities with a special focus on the major transportation corridors in Snohomish, King and Pierce Counties. This Fair Housing Equity Assessment is part of the Growing Transit Communities’ three-year project to ensure equity along transit lines. We need your help!
They are holding three forums to discuss a broad range of topics to include:
- Are we perpetuating segregation today?
- Are there attitudes about Section 8, low-income housing, group homes or the homeless that impede integrated housing patterns?
- Is affordable housing only being built in diverse or low-income neighborhoods?
- Can government and private investment in transportation increase housing opportunities for low-income families?
