As we continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, many of our friends and neighbors in our community are struggling to make ends meet.

One of the priorities of budget writers was to make sure that people in communities throughout Washington can afford the basics, and there’s nothing more essential than being able to afford rent and utilities.

Thanks to funding from our partners at the federal level and funding provided to our state’s Dept. of Commerce, Pierce County and the City of Tacoma are able to help folks having a hard time making ends meet.

If you, or someone you know needs a little help paying your rent or utility costs, you can follow this link to apply for help.
