On March 14, 2018, the Seattle City Council unanimously passed legislation raising nearly $50 million per year for housing, shelter, and services over the next five years, through a tax on the city's largest businesses. Housing For All will continue working to ensure that this new revenue is used to make a real dent in the homelessness emergency. Join us!
we are at a crossroads in Seattle's history
As population and cost of living surge, and the supply of affordable housing dwindles, the Homelessness State of Emergency declared in 2015 continues to deepen. Our actions today will determine whether the Seattle of the future is a welcoming sanctuary that embraces diversity, or a homogenous city where only the most privileged can live. Thus far, the City’s response to the homelessness crisis has failed to adequately reckon with the affordable housing crisis that is at its root. We can do better.
