Housing Resources

Information for those who are looking for affordable rental housing in the King County area:

  • Multifamily Affordable Properties is an internet resource for affordable housing opportunities in Washington State. You can search by city, county and type of housing, such as housing for an individual, family, for a senior or for a person with a disability.
  • Housing Finance Commission Tax Credit Project Allows you to search for properties that received tax credit financing and must have rents set at fairly affordable levels. You may search by county, city or zip code. The search will give you a list of properties; click on the "OID" number for the property to see more information about the project, such as address and who to contact for vacancies.
  • HUD-subsidized affordable rental units search site Washington Allows you to search for federally-subsidized affordable housing units by county, city, zip code or name of building, if you know the name.
  • The Rental Housing Association of Puget Sound maintains a free on-line search engine for searching for available rental units on their web site; not all of the rental units available on the site are affordable, but you can search for units within your price range.
