Housing Affordability Regional Taskforce (HART)

HART

Snohomish County Housing Affordability Regional Taskforce

Mission Statement



The Snohomish County Housing Affordability Regional Taskforce (HART) collaboratively developed a five-year action plan that identifies priorities for County and City governments to accelerate our collective ability to meet the affordable housing needs of all County residents, and sets a foundation for continued success through 2050.

I believe that a coordinated response to this challenge is our best step forward. Cities, tribes, and the county, together with other governments, private sector firms and non-profit agencies, need to determine what we are each willing and able to do and then act accordingly. To identify solutions, I established the Snohomish County Housing Affordability Regional Taskforce (HART) in May of 2019.


HART consists of a team of City and County officials, supported by other community leaders.  The focus of our work is on middle-income and affordable housing, subsidized housing, alternative housing models, and land use and redevelopment.
