Committee Vacancy

SAN JUAN COUNTY, WA. December 7, 2022 – Are you a San Juan Island resident who is passionate and knowledgeable about affordable housing in San Juan County? The County is seeking a new member for the Housing Advisory Committee (HAC) to fill the San Juan Island position. 

The Committee is the main advisory body to the County Council on affordable housing issues. It oversees several county programs that impact affordable housing including the Home Fund, the Equity Loan Program which provides down payment loans for low-income first-time home buyers, document recording fees, rental subsidies for extremely low-income qualified seniors, and more. The HAC also advises the County Council on policy issues concerning housing for low and moderate-income citizens in our community.

HAC members are expected to participate in monthly public meetings – in-person or by conference call.  HAC members are volunteers that are appointed by the County Council. Currently there is a vacancy for one member from San Juan Island. The member who fills this seat may reside in either Friday Harbor or the unincorporated area of the island.
