Through this Letter of Interest (LOI) process, Building Changes aims to identify up to four communities in Washington State outside of King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties to participate in a one-year equity-focused capacity building project. Approximately $200,000 will be available in grant funds to each community, with the ultimate goal of improving experiences and outcomes for families of color in their homeless response system.
