 +As of January of this year, Microsoft has committed $500 million to increase Seattle’s supply of affordable housing. With the influx of 50,000 employees the average cost of a home in the area rose 96% between 2011 and 2018, while average incomes only increased by 34%. Aiming to alleviate the pressures on lower income folks being pushed out of the local housing market, the company will help fund construction loans for affordable housing and will also devote $425 million to grants intended to alleviate homelessness. As the construction loans are repaid the company will make additional loans.
