Holly Park resident relocation

All residents living in Holly Park at the time of the HOPE VI grant award (May 31, 1996) were eligible for relocation benefits under the federal Uniform Relocation Act.

This law insured that no resident would be left without a decent, safe and affordable home as a result of the redevelopment process. Relocation benefits included counseling, assistance with moving as needed, and reimbursement of moving expenses. A number of social service agencies and businesses also received relocation assistance.

832 households required relocation. Each received individual counseling regarding their rights and opportunities. The Holly Park Community Council contracted with Seattle Housing Authority to provide these services with a staff of six, capable of speaking twelve different languages.

Each household had their choice of the following options:

  • Relocate permanently to a different Seattle Housing Authority community.
  • Relocate permanently using a Housing Choice Voucher in the private rental market.
  • Relocate temporarily and return to NewHolly when the redevelopment was completed.

Those who chose to relocate permanently from Holly Park were the first to move. To the greatest extent possible, residents whose first choice was to stay at NewHolly remained on-site.

By April 2002 the process for all of the 832 original Holly Park households was completed. Even though the third phase of the redevelopment is still in process, the needs of all original households have been met. 89 percent of those whose first choice was to return to NewHolly were able to do so.
