Tacoma students experiencing homelessness may soon get housing help thanks to a new local partnership.

In a joint news release, Tacoma Housing Authority and Tacoma Public Schools announced that they’ve teamed up to prioritize unhoused families who have students in the district. The pair is locking arms to create a “local waitlist preference” that will extend housing-program access to vulnerable residents.
