Snohomish County, cities announce $9.6M for mental health, shelter

EVERETT — Mental health and shelter needs are set for a nearly $10 million boost across Snohomish County, city and county leaders announced Thursday.

Projects span Bothell, Edmonds, Everett, Lynnwood, Marysville, Monroe, Mukilteo, Snohomish and Sultan. Each city is using its federal American Rescue Plan Act money for the programs, with the county contributing some of its $160 million in ARPA funds as well.

In all, about $9.6 million will provide shelter for a few dozen people, keep at least 130 people in their homes or help them to find new housing, and fund behavioral health services through case managers and social workers, according to the county.

“Our unsheltered population is increasing and we need to act now to make sure we have shelter units to house the most vulnerable members of our communities,” county Office and Recovery and Resilience spokesperson Kelsey Nyland said.
