COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

In collaboration with community, we are breaking down barriers to success. We actively work to make Washington State a place where the African Diaspora community can achieve prosperity.

BLACK HOMEOWNERSHIP

In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King & Kittitas Counties, we will develop and steward 65 new, permanently affordable homes across three sites on Martin Luther King Way S. in Seattle’s Rainier Valley. These projects are the first in ACHD’s and Habitat SKKC’s historic partnership to center Black homeownership and prosperity across multiple projects throughout Seattle and South King County.  

Project Launch: 2025 - 2026

CULTURAL ANCHOR VILLAGE

Representing the future of the African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community in King County and beyond, the Cultural Anchor Village will be designed by and for the community as a response to rampant displacement and a historic underinvestment in the African Diaspora community.

Project Completion: 2027

VIBRANT PUBLIC MARKETPLACE

Inspired by our success with the Delridge Farmers Market, a permanent public market focused on entrepreneurs and small business owners from the immigrant and refugee community will open the door to long term prosperity. The market will be coupled with ACHD's existing low-cost workspaces, one-on-one mentorship, technical assistance, culturally specific support services, and advocacy to ensure the success of business owners.

Project Completion: TBD
