ARP: Everett Announced a Plan to Help Unhoused Residents Transition to Permanent Housing

Idea Category: Housing | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin announced a plan to purchase and convert a hotel into a bridge housing program to help unhoused residents transition to permanent housing. Franklin has prioritized addressing housing needs in the community and will use $9 million of American Rescue Plan funds for the project, which will also provide wraparound services to ensure Everett supports its most vulnerable residents. “Providing shelter for those in need and significantly reducing public safety challenges related to chronic homelessness is a top priority for Everett residents. Snohomish County’s purchase of the Days Inn will provide shelter to some of the most vulnerable members of our community. This is a necessary action to making all our residents safer,” Franklin said.
