Description: The Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) provides equitable opportunities for people to be healthy, happy, self-reliant and connected to community.

King County faces unprecedented affordable housing issues.  Amidst tremendous growth, in places both obvious and hidden, many in our community are struggling to meet their basic housing needs.  And while King County has supported affordable housing, in all its forms for many years, clearly the dramatic need demands new solutions and broader thinking.  The Housing Finance Program Manager is a key leader in this effort, directing the development of the hundreds of affordable housing units needed throughout King County.

A central focus of the position will be the implementation of King County’s Affordable Housing Strategy.  While still under development, the strategy identifies additional capital resources that will become available over the next several years.  These resources need to be strategically targeted to the greatest need.  In addition, the Affordable Housing Strategy calls for new partnerships and programs that can create new units more quickly and at lower costs.  The Housing Finance Program Manager will work closely with DCHS leadership and stakeholders to effectively implement these strategies.

Who May Apply:  This position is open to all qualified candidates that meet the minimum qualifications.  The Department of Community and Human Services values diverse perspectives and life experiences.  The Department encourages people of all backgrounds to apply, including people of color, immigrants, refugees, women, LGBTQ, people with disabilities, veterans, and those with lived experiences.
