Committee Membership - 2019

 Note -  The Affordable Housing Committee is merging with the Community Engagement Committee - come back for updates.

The Homeless Network of Yakima County Affordable Housing Committee is comprised of multiple service providers and members of the community who are associated with the development, management, and access to affordable housing in Yakima County.   The committee will assist in determining gaps in the housing continuum of care and make recommendations to the Community on how to best close those gaps in relation to the current Homeless and Housing Needs Assessment for all residents of Yakima County.   To best make these recommendations, the committee will do the following:

  • Complete a recent Housing Needs Assessment which will include a Housing  inventory.
  • Compile, Analyze, and disseminate Best Practices and Innovations regarding Affordable Housing.
  • Identify potential partners to assist in addressing those gaps in the housing continuum of care including providers, municipalities, and members of the community.
  • Advocate and educate consumers and the public to address issues surrounding affordable housing.

The Committee meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 3pm.  For more information, see our Events page.
