Latest count shows 16,385 individuals experiencing homelessness in King County

Updates on Affordable Housing and Homelessness in King County

In early May the King County Regional Homelessness Authority published the initial report on the 2024 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count, which is a metric required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to estimate the number of people experiencing homelessness annually in King County.

The report found that on any given night, there are an estimated 16,385 individuals experiencing homelessness in King County. The larger report, including sub-regional numbers, is expected to be published this summer.

On May 14, 2024, the North King County Affordable Housing 101 Lunch and Learn held an online overview by the Housing Development Consortium on the regional housing landscape. (Click to view the recording of the event.) The consortium presented an introduction to NUHSA’s new affordable housing glossary, and a roundtable update of affordable housing in North King County cities.

On the following Tuesday, community members gathered with Councilmembers Valerie Sasson and Debra Srebnik at city hall to continue the discussion of affordable housing in Kenmore.
