The cost of renting or owning housing has been increasing at a faster rate than income for many households in the region, especially in Bellevue. As a result, housing is not affordable to a significant portion of the population. The Affordable Housing Strategy project will identify what it will take to have a healthy housing market that provides a safe, healthy and affordable place to live for people of all income levels.

Bellevue City Council has prioritized creating an Affordable Housing Strategy. The purpose of the strategy is to develop a set of actions to increase affordable housing options across a range of incomes and needs, including:

  • Low- and moderate-income families wanting to keep their children in Bellevue schools.
  • Seniors who want to remain in their homes and neighborhoods.
  • Recent graduates entering the job market and students working on their degrees.
  • First-time homebuyers and newcomers who want to make Bellevue their home.
