Public Policy Committee


Formerly known as the State Legislative Committee, the Public Policy Committee (PPC) helps determine our state legislative agenda through an extensive decision-making process that the entire board later approves. The Public Policy Committee is comprised of Housing Alliance members from across the state. Combined, these committee members have a depth of housing and policy experience representing the spectrum of affordable housing stakeholders. The Housing Alliance Board of Directors approves committee members who must apply for membership. Only individual or organizational members of the Housing Alliance are eligible to apply for the Public Policy Committee. To become a member of the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance, click here
