Community Action Report Shows Impact in Community Food and Big Plans for Affordable Housing

In the Community Action Center 2017 Report to the Community, you will see:

How Whitman County is joining the work to build up food security across the county through the Whitman County Food Coalition

Over $1.5 million go out to residential landlords through the Housing Choice Voucher program, or Section 8 housing

RiverView Apartments was awarded $800,000 from the Washington State Housing Trust Fund, as well as funding from Low Income Housing Tax Credits and other sources, to build 56 affordable homes for families and people facing homelessness, or otherwise need affordable housing, in the Pullman area. The goal will be to break ground on the property just south and east of Pullman Regional Hospital in late fall 2018, with completion before year-end of 2019.

Helping hundreds of families facing homelessness, thousands of families receiving food from the Community Food Bank, and hundreds getting help to keep power on at their home with Energy Assistance, you make a difference when you donate to Community Action Center, volunteer at the Food Bank or Gardens, or attend the Chef’s Challenge fundraiser for Community Food.
