Encourage non-English Speakers to Participate in HALA Focus Group

Was checking the City's HALA (Housing Affordability and Livability) website and saw this:

Want to serve on a HALA Community Focus Group?

We are looking for community members to serve on our community focus groups that will guide the implementation of HALA. Learn more and complete our application today! Deadline is Friday February 26 for the general public, and Friday March 11 for non-English speakers. Email us at HALAapplication@Seattle.gov for more information.

Community Focus Group Applications available in translated languages. Due to the delayed release of translated Community Focus Group applications, the deadline is extended to Friday March 11 for non-English speakers. Application forms now reflect the March 11 due date.

What supports would you need to participate fully in a Community Focus Group? The City may be able to provide accommodation. When filling out an application, please indicate which supports would help you participate.
Supports include:
  • Child Care
  • Transportation
  • Translation
  • Interpretation
  • Small Stipend (for low income participants only)

end of notice

The City's survey on the renewal of the Seattle Housing Levy is still live so do go and participate in that as well.
