Kent Affordable Housing

Working to improve housing opportunities in our community

 

Kent’s workers, families and retirees of modest means are the main concern of Kent Affordable Housing (KAH), an all-volunteer nonprofit organization founded in 1990. 

  • South Common, a 24-unit rental complex, was inaugurated in 2003. 
  • Stuart Farm Apartments, five affordable rentals within walking distance of the center of Kent, opened in 2012, and 5 more opened in 2018.
  • The KAH Parcel Program seeks to obtain small lots to be leased to families who build homes for themselves.  One home built on donated land is now owner-occupied.
  •  KAH is working with HousingUS, a program to encourage the creation of accessory apartments in Kent.​​​
  •  

**In the spring of 2020 there are critical needs for rent subsidies for residents who have lost jobs or hours or have been furloughed.
