Overview of Independent Living and Housing Services
The King County Developmental Disabilities Division (KCDDD) housing staff work in partnership with the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to refer people to affordable housing and to prevent people from becoming homeless.
The KCDDD also provides capital funding for the development of new affordable independent living and housing for persons with developmental disabilities through the Housing Innovations for Persons with Developmental Disabilities Program (HIPDD). The KCDDD collaborates with the King County Housing Finance Program to administer this funding program and with the DSHS/DDD to refer clients to the newly created housing.Presentations from the May 2007 Housing Conference:
