About Washington State Housing Finance Commission
The Washington State Housing Finance Commission is a market-driven and self-supporting state commission created to provide below-market rate financing for building, purchase and preservation of affordable housing, and non-profit capital facilities, and community services. To achieve its goals, the Commission functions as a financing conduit for developers, lenders, first-time home buyers, real estate professionals, beginning farmers and ranchers, and non-profit organizations to provide affordable financing for homes, rental housing, and cultural and social services facilities. Commission financing does not utilize or impact the state’s credit.
We believe that creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment is important and vital to the success of the Commission. We believe in working together to create an environment free from harassment and discrimination and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual.
