What is the application process?

Tenants can apply using our online application found at www.piercecountywa.gov/housinghelp. After submission, tenant applications will be prioritized based on information provided and referred to a provider. After the providers receive the referral, they will make initial contact with you and provide next steps. The service provider may contact you for additional documentation and contact your landlord for documentation. The provider will then schedule an intake meeting if necessary.
