Spokane Housing Authority Board

Authorized by and Date:
Authorized by Spokane City Council (RCW 35.82) on May 26, 1972.

Mission Statement or Purpose:
The Spokane Housing Authority (SHA) is a public body, corporate and politic of the State of Washington. Its physical boundaries originally included the City of Spokane and five miles beyond those boundaries. It now serves, through a variety of cooperation agreements, all of the unincorporated Spokane County and the most of the incorporated municipalities within the County. SHA also provides rental assistance in Lincoln, Stevens, Pend Oreille and Whitman Counties and functions as lead agency for a 12-County Eastern Washington housing program for persons with AIDS. While the SHA is not a part of Spokane City government, the Mayor of Spokane appoints its commission members. The state legislature has created housing authorities to ameliorate the shortage of safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations available at costs, which persons of low income can afford. The Authority may buy, build or lease housing by itself or in cooperation with the Federal Government to accomplish its objectives to supply decent, safe and sanitary housing in the community. Housing Authorities also have the capacity to issue tax-exempt bonds.

Meeting date, time and location
The Board meets the fourth Monday of each month at 3:30 p.m. at the Offices of the NEWHS, 55 W. Mission, in the large conference room.
