If you haven’t received an invite…

You may pre-register to be included in the tenant selection pool. You must meet the household eligibility requirements below to pre-register.

Tenant selection pool

Each week, we will randomly select registered tenants to participate in the program. The number selected will vary based on service providers’ capacity. Weekly selections will continue until all EPRAP funds are disbursed.

King County is also operating the City of Seattle’s tenant selection pool. Until the City’s funds are disbursed, Seattle residents will have two chances to be selected each week; first in the Seattle selection process, and secondly in the wider King County selection process.

Once you register, you can sign back into this website at any time to check your status. If you are selected, one of our contracted community-based organizations will send you information about next steps via text and/or email message in your preferred language.

  • Residence within the King County geographical area
  • A lease; or proof of regular recurring rent payments
  • Household income at or below 50% of Area Median Income; households can use 2020 income or current income to prove eligibility;
