Housing

DNDA participates in Apartment Finder, a non-profit organization that advertises subsidized and rent-restricted affordable apartment communities throughout Washington State. Not all properties advertised on that site are subsidized, but all offer affordable rents to low income individuals and families. Visit aptfinder.org for more information.

Affordable Housing Resource Program
DNDA currently owns seven buildings in the Delridge area of West Seattle with a total of 144 units for rent. All of our buildings offer housing that is less expensive than for-profit buildings so that families with lower incomes can always live in Delridge.

DNDA owns a variety of rental properties in the Delridge community. With these properties, DNDA’s goals are:

  • to offer housing that is less expensive than for-profit buildings so that families with lower incomes can always live in Delridge
  • to take good care of the properties that we own so that they are comfortable to live in, and assets to the community

Most DNDA apartments are leased at a fixed rent. A few apartments in each DNDA building have ‘Project Based’ Section 8 vouchers. In these homes, tenants pay 30% of their income for rent which allows us to provide housing for some people and families with very low incomes. For all other apartments, residents must earn at least two times the rent.
