Fact Sheet Updates and Community Meetings

Questions and Answers
 In November 2011, Delridge Community Forum submitted 37 questions to DESC. These questions were consolidated from the hundreds of questions and comments collected at the October 11, 2011 community meeting, hosted by Delridge Community Forum.  DESC provided answers to these questions on March 6, 2012.

We encourage neighbors to read through this following to find answers to questions that address community concerns.  If your questions were not addressed, or if you find that you have additional questions, email: delridgeforum@gmail.com.  We will work with the newly established Advisory Committee to have additional questions answered.

A list of all the questions and comments collected are the October 11 forum can be found on the Fact Sheet tab.
Federal Funding/Tax Credits
 DESC has yet to secure federal funding through the Tax Credit program.  The Washington State Housing Finance Commission (WSHFC) will meet on March 22 to review and determine if tax credit funding will be awarded to DESC’s proposed project on Delridge Way SW. 

The Tax Credit application submitted by DESC has been added to our funding page for your review.  Visit the Funding Tab for more information.

The WSHFC meeting on March 22 will have a public comment period.  Written comments in advance of the meeting may be submitted to Steve Walker, Director of WSHFC by email:  steve.walker@wshfc.org.
