SEATTLE (AP) — SEATTLE Mayor Jenny Durkan announced Monday that the city this year will invest a record amount of $110 million into affordable housing.
The Seattle Times reports the funding will go toward the construction and redevelopment of 1,944 new units across the city.

Durkan stressed the urgent need for affordable housing in a time of great economic growth and displacement.

“Look, we know that our city has grown so rapidly, and so many people have been pushed out of the community instantly, that I think it really threatens who we are as a city,” Durkan said.
