2021 Endorsements

The Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund educates voters, promotes smart public policy, and supports candidates who share our vision that all Washington residents have the opportunity to live in safe, healthy, affordable homes, in thriving communities. The work of Housing Champions has resulted in extraordinary wins for housing and homelessness policies, particularly in collaboration with our wide network over the last three years. 

This year we are considering endorsements in specific local races. Our endorsements are below. We expect to consider additional races after the primary election.

We are proud to have our first subcommittee for the Action Fund in Snohomish County. For more information go to their page: Housing Action Alliance of Snohomish County (HAASC).

Housing Action Fund Endorsements

The Action Fund will not be endorsing in the Seattle Mayoral Race in the Primary but will consider this race for the General Election. We encourage you to take a look at the mayoral candidate applications to help you make your decision. Please note that not all mayoral candidates submitted responses to our questionnaire.

Election results last updated August 10, 9:00am.
