2. Advocate to build support for the Ten-Year Plan by talking with neighbors, friends and government officials.

2013 Progress Report—Homeless Housing and Services Fund
Since 2005, the Washington State Legislature authorized a series of document recording fee surcharges to be used to implement state and local plans to end homelessness. In King County, the surcharge revenue is called the Homeless Housing and Services Fund (HHSF). Annually, HHSF funded projects serve approximately 2,454 households (4,232 individuals.) The HHSF also provides funding for the King County Landlord Liaison Project (LLP), a critical resource for homeless housing programs throughout King County.
