Are you looking for affordable housing in Seattle? SHA may be able to help.


SHA Housing

Seattle Housing Authority owns and operates more than 8,000 apartments and single-family homes at nearly 400 sites throughout the city through its Low-Income Public Housing Program, the Seattle Senior Housing Program and additional housing. Learn about the different housing programs, eligibility, properties that might fit your situation and how to apply. 

Housing Choice Vouchers

Through the Housing Choice Voucher program (formerly Section 8), SHA provides rental assistance for people with low incomes to rent from landlords throughout the Seattle rental market. Application for a chance to receive a Housing Choice Voucher is ongoing. Families and individuals may apply at any time..

Collaborative Housing

Through the Collaborative Housing program, SHA subsidizes affordable housing that is not owned or managed by SHA. Eligibility requirements and application procedures for Collaborative Housing are different from those of other SHA programs. Households apply directly to the nonprofit agency that operates the housing.


Seattle Housing Authority will, upon request, provide reasonable accommodation to help ensure that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability is excluded from participating in, or denied the benefit of, any agency program.
