The Vancouver Housing Authority recently received an influx of funding from the Washington Department of Commerce for the development of affordable housing.

To relieve chronic homelessness in communities through housing, the Washington Department of Commerce distributed funding to communities statewide. Vancouver Housing Authority received $5 million for its Lincoln Place 2 development.

The funding streams from Commerce’s Apple Health and Homes initiative, which pairs health care services with housing resources.

In May 2022, the Clark County Council unanimously approved $2 million in mental health sales tax funding for the permanent housing project. The building will be adjacent to and modeled after the housing authority’s existing Lincoln Place at 1351 Lincoln Ave. in Vancouver.

2024 opening planned

Construction on Lincoln Place 2 is expected to begin this fall, with a projected opening date in late 2024. The permanent supportive housing option will provide 40 units for residents.

Similar to the primary Lincoln Place, the second property will work in a multifaceted partnership with ongoing wraparound services available for residents.

The first Lincoln Place is owned and managed by Vancouver Housing Authority. Share provides case management services and PeaceHealth provides onsite health services to residents.
