Yesterday, I wrote about how King County probably won't meet the housing target in its Ten Year Plan to end homelessness. The question today, in light of Ron Sims' proposed appointment as deputy secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, is how our soon-to-be former executive will affect the myriad ten year plans across the country, most of which are bound to be in the same boat as us. Will the feds still encourage these plans? Do they have any more funding to offer given the awful economy? Will affordable housing be seen as "shovel ready"?
All the plans can be found here.
