In 2019, the Washington State Department of Commerce awarded $4 million to 52 communities to address housing affordability. The grants have funded the development of housing action plans and city code changes to increase urban residential building capacity and streamline development regulations. Commerce has established a deadline of June 30 for local jurisdictions to adopt, so many are in the final stages. These plans will serve as guiding principles for future code work to implement.
