County planning veterans’ housing on Filbert Road

As it tries to increase transitional housing for veterans, Snohomish County is seeking proposals for a housing project on Filbert Road.

The county is home to about 60,000 veterans, and more than 3,000 of those are living in poverty.

“Our U.S. service women and men contribute so much to our community and quality of life that we must demonstrate our commitment to them, especially those who may have special needs,” said County Executive Aaron Reardon. “This proposed housing project is one way to support veterans in need.”

National and local data indicate that the three highest needs for veterans are jobs, treatment services and housing assistance. This project will include both housing and supportive services.

The county has issued a request for proposals (RFP), hoping to find a developer to build the housing on county-owned land.
