Inslee issues housing stability "bridge" proclamation

Gov. Jay Inslee last Tuesday (July 29) issued a housing stability 'bridge' emergency order, proclamation 21-09, intended to bridge the operational gap between the eviction moratorium (expired at 11:59 PM June 30) enacted by prior proclamations and the protections and programs subsequently enacted by the Legislature. The bridge, which was initially announced last week, will also reduce uncertainty as the state implements post-COVID long-term housing recovery strategies contained in legislative enactments such as SB 5160.

"COVID has created a significant economic impact on our state and many Washingtonians are still experiencing financial hardships. This bridge creates reasonable steps that will help ensure that renters have the opportunity to receive support and resources available to them and that the Legislature intended to be in place to help both landlords and tenants," Inslee said.

Recent legislative actions include appropriating an additional $650 million for landlord and tenant rental assistance and also establishing certain programs, like the eviction resolution pilot program, which were intended to be in place after the eviction moratorium ends. However, the funding has not yet been disbursed and these programs are not yet operational statewide.

In response to this unintended gap, this order requires, among other things, that:

Willapa Center construction starts with groundbreaking ceremony

On a bright and sunny afternoon, the Joint Pacific County Housing Authority held a historic groundbreaking ceremony. On Thursday, June 24, 2021, at noon a small crowd gathered in the park beside the Raymond Fire Station on Third St. for the long-awaited groundbreaking of the Willapa Center.

The center is designed to be a 3-story affordable housing complex, Early Childhood Education Assistance Program site, and non-profit offices located in downtown Raymond.

This project is intended to take the place of the Willapa Hotel, which was lost in a fire on November 5, 1998. The new center will sit on the same site as the hotel did.
