Mayor Harrell announces $970 million housing levy proposal

Speaking to a gathering of over 800 affordable housing developers, operators, funders, and community partners from across King County, Mayor Bruce Harrell announced his proposal for a $970 million Housing Levy that, if passed by Seattle City Council, could go to voters for approval in November 2023. Mayor Harrell delivered remarks at the Housing Development Consortium’s 35th Annual Celebration, held at the Seattle Convention Center.

In addition to supporting the development of over 3,000 units of new affordable housing throughout the city, the Mayor’s Housing Levy proposal would make first-of-its-kind investments to stabilize wages for workers who provide critical services to the lowest-income residents with the greatest supportive service needs. The proposal would also do more than any prior levy to support the operations and maintenance necessary to keep City-funded affordable housing running safely and sustainably in the long-term.
