Notice of Public Comment Period for College Housing Assistance Program

College Housing Assistance Program Alignment Proposal

We want your comments and suggestions!

At our August 26th meeting, The Tacoma Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners will consider changes to the College Housing Assistance Program (CHAP). CHAP uses two types of subsidies (tenant based subsidy and property based subsidy). The program requirements are different for each subsidy type. The changes being proposed are to apply the same requirements across the program. We worked with our college partners to create these proposed changes.

Learn more about the potential changes in our full report.

We also created a summarized report

We warmly welcome your comments and suggestions. You can provide feedback on the proposed changes in a variety of ways: 

  • Complete this short survey

Our Board will consider these changes on August 26th at 4:45 PM. It is likely the Board will meet virtually via Zoom. Check the Board Meeting Schedule for the link to join. You are welcome to attend and comment then also.
