2020 MTW Plan: THA customers that are accessing THA rental assistance are having a harder time finding rental units in Tacoma. This is because of low vacancy rates and high rents. THA is planning to use its funding to help its customers be more competitive in the private market. This might include offering incentives to landlords, assisting with fees or helping people look for housing. THA wants to hear your ideas for how it can help people find affordable housing.
