Councilmember Burgess’ Statement on $30M from Allen Foundation

Councilmember Tim Burgess (Position 8, Citywide), chair of the Council’s Affordable Housing, Neighborhoods and Finance Committee, issued the following statement in response to the Allen Foundation’s $30M investment in housing for homeless families:

“This strategic investment is a great example of what Seattle’s philanthropic and business community can accomplish when they creatively partner with city government and nonprofit housing providers.

“Today is yet another example of Paul Allen’s many contributions which have helped make Seattle such a great place to call home.  His investments in arts and culture, science, and sports will make a difference for generations to come.”
