In 2005 the Washington State Legislature created the Homeless Housing Program to develop and coordinate a statewide strategic plan aimed at housing homeless persons. RCW 43.185C.160 requires each participating county to create or designate a Homeless Housing Task Force. The Homeless Housing Task Force provides input into the ongoing development of a five-year plan to address homelessness in Cowlitz County as required by RCW 43.185C.160.
The Cowlitz County Plan to Address Homelessness may be viewed below.
