Tacoma is in a housing affordability crisis. We see the impacts through rising rents, home prices and evictions, leading to over 29,000 renters and 18,000 homeowners living in high precarious neighborhoods throughout our region.* The Affordable Housing Action Strategy (AHAS) is an organization wide initiative to address our housing affordability crisis through 27 strategic actions defined by the City and our stakeholders.
*Determined by high displacement and eviction risk, along with high levels of unemployment. See Urban Displacement Project—Housing Precarity Risk Model.
