Success Story
SEED Grows Commercial Activity and Maintains Affordable Housing
SouthEast Effective Development (SEED) has improved community conditions in Rainier Valley by working to maintain affordable housing and growing commercial activity. SEED spearheaded housing developments for low- and moderate-income residents, seniors and disabled people through a combination of acquisition, rehabilitation and new construction projects. The projects, including the award-winning Rainier Court housing complex, also feature cultural and retail spaces.
Nationwide, Community Development Corporations (CDCs) generate an annual average of 86,000 housing units, nearly 9 million square feet of commercial space, and 75,000 jobs.
