Landlord Survey Summary (PDF)

January 2021 Draft Housing Action Plan (PDF). A draft to guide the Cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater in developing their own city-specific plans.

What is TRPC doing?

The cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater are developing individual Housing Action Plans in order to encourage the construction of additional affordable and market-rate housing in a greater variety of housing types, and at prices that are accessible to a greater variety of incomes. 

To support this work, the cities have contracted with TRPC to develop:

  • A housing needs assessment, including a 25-year projection of housing affordable at different income levels
  • A list of specific actions that Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater can take to increase the affordable housing stock
  • A rental survey, to better understand what residents are paying for rent and how rents are changing

The plan will be completed in 2021.


Thurston County’s 5-Year Homeless Housing Plan (2019-2024) identifies the region’s response to the homeless housing crisis. The goal of the Housing Action Plan is to identify strategies to build affordable housing for people of all incomes, without duplicate work done to reduce homelessness.


Funding for the Housing Action Plan was provided by the state legislature through HB 1923 and awarded by the Dept. of Commerce.
