Amanda DeShazo, the E.D. for the Tacoma Affordable Housing Consortium, surprised LASA (Living Access Support Alliance) with a box of goodies in honor of the work they did getting emergency rental assistance out to the community. LASA was named one of the Housing Heroes in Pierce County.
In 2020, LASA provided $1,528,561.36 of emergency rental assistance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to 961 households living in Lakewood, Tacoma and Fife.
LASA is getting ready for a new round of rental assistance. We don’t have funds yet, but we will make an announcement when we are funded. Until then, if you or someone you know is in need of rental assistance, they should call 2-1-1.
