General Housing FAQs
These are the most common questions that we receive through our HCD Program reception staff.
Does the Housing and Community Development Program help a person find a place to live?
No, the Housing and Community Development Program does not provide services that help an individual person(s) find housing in King County. We have a resource section on this web site to assist you in your search for affordable housing. Click here

Do you help people buy a home with no downpayment?
We do not provide any services directly to the public to help you buy a home, but we do contract with community agencies so that they can provide homebuyer education, counseling and down-payment assistance. Click here

Are you the same thing as the King County Housing Authority?
No, we are a completely separate entity from the King County Housing Authority, consequently, we cannot answer any questions about King County Housing Authority programs, such as the section 8 voucher program and the public housing program.
