Household eligibility

An “eligible household” is defined as a renter household where at least one or more individuals meets the following criteria:

  • Residence within the King County geographical area
  • A lease; or proof of regular recurring rent payments
  • Household income at or below 50% of Area Median Income; households can use 2020 income or current income to prove eligibility;
    Median family income50% Income limits* ($) by number of persons in family
    * Seattle - Bellevue, WA HUD Metro FMR Area Median Income Limits
  • Must prove they are experiencing a financial hardship directly or indirectly due to the COVID-19 outbreak;
  • Must prove they are at risk of experiencing homelessness or currently experiencing housing instability

Rental assistance provided to an eligible household cannot duplicate any other federally funded rental assistance provided to the household. Eligible households that include an individual who has been unemployed for the 90 days prior to application for assistance and households with income at or below 50% of the area median are to be prioritized for assistance
