Starting Monday, March 16 all Housing Authority offices will be closed to the public until further notice. This is in response to the Governor's emergency declaration for government agencies to take proactive measures to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. We will keep you advised of when the offices will reopen via this website. If you need to contact the Housing Authority during the time we are closed to the public, please call (425) 258-9222. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.

MTW Draft Plan – Comment Period and Public Hearing

MTW Draft Plan – Comment Period and Public Hearing

Your Voice Matters! We Need Your Input on our Moving to Work Application

 

Everett Housing Authority (EHA) is applying to be part of a demonstration program that will allow us to make some changes to our programs to better serve our community and be more efficient.  The program is called MTW (Moving to Work). 

It is important that as we consider making changes, we hear from the people that we serve.  We need your feedback on what is working well and your ideas for ways that we can serve you better. 

Part of MTW would include a new rent policy that would encourage households to increase their income. Other changes could include improvements to our current programs or new programs or services.  You can learn more about MTW on our MTW webpage here.

 

There are three ways you can give feedback:

 

Take Our Survey

Update 12/8/2020: If you responded to our MTW survey, thank you! The survey is now closed, and we have selected the winners for the gift card drawing and will be mailing out gift cards soon.  If you provided your information for the drawing, you will be notified soon if your name was drawn for a gift card.
