Get involved in your community

People who live in buildings owned by Seattle Housing Authority, or who receive housing assistance from the agency, have several ways to get involved in the decision-making processes that affect their buildings and communities.

Councils and committees

Many public housing buildings have resident councils that support activities and events within the building. The Resident Action Council (RAC), Joint Policy Advisory Committee (JPAC), and Seattle Senior Housing Program Advocates II (SSHPA) offer other chances to get involved. Please contact the community builder who works in your community to learn more. 

Community building

The community building process puts SHA residents at the forefront of efforts to build their neighborhoods. The agency has seven Community Builders to offer support.
