Housing Week Panel @ Limelight Cinema | Bellingham | Washington | United States

There are multiple levels of government and dozens of local agencies that are working to address the housing affordability crisis and rising homelessness. Understanding how they all fit together can be quite confusing! This is your chance to “look under the hood” of some of the programs in our community, using examples highlighted in three short films. Come to learn who does what related to affordable housing and homelessness in our area – and bring your burning questions for those who are working on these issues every day. The popcorn is on us!

Session panelists will include:

Samya Lutz – Housing & Services Program Manager, City of Bellingham
Barbara Johnson-Vinna – Housing Specialist, Whatcom County Health Department
Greg Winter – Executive Director, Opportunity Council
Joanne LaTuchie – Vice President of Real Estate Development, Mercy Housing Northwest

Landlord Mitigation Program – The Right Choice, The Right Solution @ Bellingham Public Library: Central Branch Meeting Room | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Throughout Washington, a new Landlord Mitigation Program went into effect on June 7, 2018. Property owners who lease to tenants that have rental assistance can now seek reimbursement up to $6,000, and for up to fourteen-days of rent loss, per subsidized tenant. Nicholas Yuva, Landlord Mitigation Administrator for the State of Washington, will arm landlords with the knowledge, tools and resources to easily and efficiently submit claims for reimbursement. Representatives from the Bellingham Housing Authority and Opportunity Council will also provide information about local rental assistance programs that may make a landlord eligible for reimbursement through this new program.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8): Facts, Fiction and Benefits @ Eleanor Apartments | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Created in the 1970s, the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) is the Federal government’s largest program for assisting very low-income, elderly and disabled families to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market. More than 2.2 million low-income families use vouchers throughout the United States to help pay their rent and the Bellingham Housing Authority assists approximately 1,800 households in Whatcom County. This session will provide a general overview of how the program works, with a goal of clarifying common misconceptions and discussing a variety of community benefits. Please bring your questions about the Bellingham Housing Authority and the Section 8 program.
