By: Ali Saperstein, Regional Affordable Housing Specialist
King County DCHS is excited to announce a unique consulting opportunity to establish and manage the Community Partners Table (Table) of the Affordable Housing Committee (Committee).
The Table will represent the people most negatively affected by the regional housing crisis—including cost-burdened Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. Engaging and partnering with the Table is a key opportunity for Committee members to ensure that voices who have historically been excluded have a means to inform and shape efforts to eliminate housing cost burden among low-income households in King County.
Qualified consulting teams will have experience in successfully working within existing governmental structures while advocating for equity-based changes and expertise in leading movement-building, capacity-building, or collaborative organizing projects with BIPOC-led community-based organizations.
