Thank you Seattle voters for renewing the Housing Levy, which will continue to fund the many programs that provide affordable housing to Seattle residents. The expanded housing levy will strengthen existing programs and create new initiatives to address today's unique housing needs.
On Monday, Seattle City Council passed the Mandatory Housing Affordability Residential (MHA-R) framework. This new program will harness new growth in our city and add 6,000 more homes for low income community members. Read more HERE.
HALA in the Community
City Staff from many departments gave out free ice cream and talked with South Seattle residents at Seattle Summer Parkways / Rainier Heritage Parade in Rainier Valley on Saturday. Come see us in Ballard on August 27th at the next Summer Parkways event.
We'll be giving away more ice cream in exchange for some conversation with you! Look for the big white tent and the CityScoop banners.

Focus Groups Update
Focus Groups are making progress, having meaningful dialogue and their thoughts and ideas have contributed directly to changes made to the MHA program. You can listen to a story recently featured on KPLU about the Focus Group process.
Come see us at Seattle Summer Parkways! HALA will be conveniently stationed with the Department of Neighborhoods who will be giving out FREE ICE CREAM from 1-3pm.
