Partner housing units are owned and managed by many different agencies, including local nonprofits. Some units are owned and managed by Seattle Housing Authority's Impact Property Management division. They come in a range of bedroom sizes and are located in multi-family buildings and apartment buildings throughout the city.
These units are funded through the Section 8 Project-based and Mod Rehab programs, which provide housing payments to landlords for specific housing units. This is different than the traditional Housing Choice Voucher Program, where vouchers are given to eligible families who use them to rent in the private market.
Households in these programs earn 30 percent of area median income or less to qualify and pay 30 percent of monthly income for rent and utilities. They continue to pay reduced rent as long as they live in Project-based or Mod Rehab units.
Please note that the eligibility requirements and application procedures for partner housing are different than those of other programs.
