Current COVID-19 Updates
Starting June 30, the State of Washington is removing most COVID-19 restrictions.

This means that most businesses and organizations may choose to operate as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic with no capacity limits or physical distancing requirements. However, COVID-19 is still present in our communities. Any organization or business may choose to maintain capacity limits or physical distancing, and may require masks – and these are required in some settings. Mask guidance will follow the state health order. The best protection for individuals and communities is to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Pierce County Rental and Utility Assistance


Pierce County Human Services and the City of Tacoma have received funding for rental and utility assistance for tenants impacted by COVID-19 and are behind on rent. This program is only for renters. Homeowners are not eligible to apply for rent or utility assistance at this time, but we hope to have mortgage assistance available soon. The purpose of the Rental Assistance program is to prevent eviction for Pierce County residents (including those living in the City of Tacoma) impacted by COVID-19 who are behind on rent. Applicants must qualify as low-income at or below 80% Area Median Income (AMI), but priority will be given to those under 50% AMI.
