The mission of the Housing Consortium of Everett and Snohomish County
is to provide strategic leadership in crafting policy and program
solutions to affordable housing challenges in Snohomish County


“22,000 by 2035!”

How Do We Get There?

Affordable Housing Conference 2014


Snohomish County will need an additional 22,000 units of housing affordable at 0%-50% of Area Median Income by 2035

  • How are we going to meet this challenge?
  • What are the tools available to us?
  • What policies and programs can be implemented to help¬†achieve this goal?


Our one-day conference will feature keynote presentations by Bill Block, Director of HUD Region 10 and Al Levine, recently retired Deputy Executive Director of the Seattle Housing Authority and currently Affiliate Faculty at the University of Washington’s Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies.


There will be break out sessions on different aspects of meeting this challenge such as working with local city councils and communities to understand community values around affordable housing, moving people out of poverty and reducing the need for affordable housing, funding sources current and future, and much more.


We are also very pleased to have Congresswoman Suzan DelBene, Snohomish County Executive John Lovick, and Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson joining us in the morning and making some remarks.


Hope to see you there!
