“Today is a day to celebrate. We thank Mayor Harrell for his partnership and leadership to create 70 units of permanent supportive housing for our unhoused neighbors. Dockside Apartments will also provide 22 affordable studios to people who work at minimum wage and are struggling to find housing. Given that we are in the midst of this humanitarian crisis of homelessness, we need more solutions like Dockside that will change lives.” — Sharon Lee, Executive Director, LIHI

“Olympia and Seattle need to be working in close partnership. During the ’21-’23 budget cycle, the Legislature committed over $1 billion in capital investments for Rapid Housing, the Housing Trust Fund and Behavioral Health facilities around the state. Seattle received funding for a number of rapid housing projects last year. With the announcement of the Mayor’s plan today and the state funds still available, the city has the opportunity to draw additional assistance from Olympia to make a difference in our community on bringing our neighbors inside. We look forward to working with Mayor Harrell to make progress.” — Senator David Frockt (46th LD)
