From San Juan County

Are you an Orcas res­i­dent who is pas­sion­ate and knowl­edge­able about afford­able hous­ing in San Juan County?

San Juan Coun­ty is seek­ing a new mem­ber for the Hous­ing Advi­so­ry Com­mit­tee to fill the Orcas Island posi­tion on the committee.

The com­mit­tee is the main advi­so­ry body to the San Juan Coun­ty Coun­cil on afford­able hous­ing issues.

The com­mit­tee over­sees sev­er­al coun­ty pro­grams that impact afford­able hous­ing includ­ing the home fund, the equi­ty loan pro­gram which pro­vides down pay­ment loans for low-income first-time home­buy­ers, doc­u­ment record­ing fees, rental sub­si­dies for extreme­ly low-income qual­i­fied seniors and more.

The HAC also advis­es the San Juan Coun­ty Coun­cil on pol­i­cy issues con­cern­ing hous­ing for low, mod­er­ate and mid­dle-income cit­i­zens in our community. 

HAC mem­bers are expect­ed to par­tic­i­pate in month­ly pub­lic meet­ings, in per­son or by con­fer­ence call.  HAC mem­bers are vol­un­teers that are appoint­ed by the Coun­ty Coun­cil. Cur­rent­ly, there is a vacan­cy for one mem­ber from Orcas Island.
