The Tacoma Housing Authority received a $100,000 grant from Umpqua Bank. The grant will help boost services at the newly opened Arlington Apartments for young adults 18 to 24 who are — or are at risk of being — homeless or transitioning from foster care. The grant will help provide residents with childcare, job searches, distance learning, and other support they need on the way to a successful adulthood. Umpqua Bank announced its grants in December 2020, recognizing nonprofits who adapted and expanded services to underrepresented communities related to the pandemic and wildfires. The other two grant recipients were Roseburg-based NeighborWorks Umpqua and Sacramento-based Alchemist Community Development. Established in 1940, Tacoma Housing Authority provides stable and sustainable housing and supportive services to people in need.
