A Regional Coalition for Housing (ARCH) is a partnership of the County and East King County Cities who have joined together to assist with preserving and increasing the supply of housing for low- and moderate-income households in the region. ARCH's role is to:

  • Assist member governments in developing housing policies, strategies, programs, and development regulations
  • Coordinate the cities' financial support to groups creating affordable housing for low- and moderate-income households
  • Assist people looking for affordable rental and ownership housing

ARCH's member governments have supported a wide range of housing created and operated by local organizations and private developers that serve individuals, families, seniors, the homeless, and persons with special needs. ARCH is comprised of 15 Eastside cities and King County, including Woodinville.
