Other Housing Resources

Seattle Housing Authority provides long-term rental housing and rental assistance to low-income households. The agency does not provide temporary shelter, emergency shelter, or transitional housing. It does not operate low-income homeownership programs.

However, a number of nonprofit agencies in Seattle do provide these services and may be able to help you in your search for housing. Contact information and links to their websites are provided below. Organizations that provide a range of housing services may be listed in more than one category:
