The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle works in partnership with United Way to provide eviction prevention and rental assistance services to individuals and families who have been impacted or displaced by the pandemic. Soon, we will begin enrolling participants for these services on a first-come, first-served basis. Please see below for more information on how to begin the process of applying.

How do I apply for eviction prevention & rental assistance services?

The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle acts as a liaison between United Way King County (UWKC) and the community to prevent eviction and homelessness by providing rent assistance for families that meet UWKC eligibility requirements.
  • Your household MUST owe back rent to your landlord at your current address. 
  • Your CURRENT address must be in King County, WA.
  • Your household has NOT received rent assistance from King County EPRAP or United Way since 6/1/2021
  1. Potential tenants must sign up on United Way King County’s website to be out on a waitlist.
  2. Tenants are randomly selected by UWKC and are then assigned to ULMS for processing. ULMS DOES NOT have any control in the selection of accepted applicants. 
  3. Complete the ULMS Intake form and email it to Crystal Barquet via cbarquet@urbanleague.org . We will require selected applicants to complete the ULMS Intake form, so it is best to complete and submit the Intake form beforehand to expedite assistance after processing.
As soon as the program begins, a housing counselor will reach out to you with the next steps.
