We believe that all Grays Harbor County residents should have decent, affordable housing.

Housing Stakeholder Coalition

A Housing Stakeholder Coalition has been formed as a platform for education and participation in implementation of strategies outlined in the 10-year Plan to End Homelessness (see below for more information about the plan).

It is an inclusive group of community stakeholders who have an interest or connection to housing programs and services in Grays Harbor.  This group provides recommendations to the Housing Executive Committee and helps guide and implement the 10-year Plan's Work Plan.

The coalition will meet quarterly (January, April, July, and October) and participants may choose to engage with specific workgroups who may meet more regularly.

Progress

The 10-year Plan to End Homelessness was approved in February 2016.

This plan is the product of a comprehensive process to understand the housing needs of Grays Harbor.

A dedicated committee of local housing providers gathered and analyzed data, identified areas of strength and weakness, learned what other communities like ours are doing to end homelessness, and recommended funding priorities for the next 10 years to our county commissioners.

Along the way, we gathered input from:

  • individuals experiencing homelessness
  • local housing providers, including landlords and local governments
  • law enforcement
  • churches and faith communities
  • schools
  • behavioral health and social service providers

This work is directed by the Homeless Housing and Assistance Act of 2005 and is funded by document recording fees.

The Homeless Housing and Assistance Act outlines requirements for both county governments and the State to address homelessness.  The Act requires county governments to develop local plans to end homeless and to update the plan every 5 years.
