Many of the projects and programs listed below are linked to an information page providing pictures of housing assisted by ARCH member cities through the Trust Fund and local housing programs, and a description of the partnerships and funding that were required to make the project a reality.
Examples of Housing and Projects from ARCH Member Cities:
Family Rental Housing

Some ownership projects, such as Habitat and Avon Villa manufactured home community, are assisted through the Housing Trust Fund. Most projects provide affordability in exchange for land use incentives and fee waivers offered to the builder. There are over 115 price-restricted ownership units with long term affordability administered for member cities by ARCH. Most of these units are attached homes and condominiums. Some affordable units are great examples of innovative design, such as duplex units at Lakeview Park in Kirkland, and cottages and small lot detached single family at Greenbrier in Woodinville.
