The City of Tacoma has announced that applications are now being accepted from private and non-profit developers seeking financing to construct or rehabilitate affordable housing through the 2019 Affordable Housing Notice of Funding Availability.

Developers of affordable permanent or rental housing for lower income individuals and families may qualify for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funds provided in the form of low-interest loans to help with the purchase, rehabilitation, or construction of affordable housing within Tacoma.

The City of Tacoma has addressed affordable housing as a high priority and has developed the Affordable Housing Action Strategy as a result. The creation of new housing is a key strategic initiative to alleviate some of the challenges of the current housing market.
