Hilltop (Home Ownership Program)
“One of the six houses in the Seafirst program awaits the remodelers’ hammers and saws.” Seafirst Bank, the Martin Luther King Housing Development Association, and the Tacoma Housing Authority organized a program to help low-income Pierce County residents purchase a home and revitalize Tacoma’s Hilltop Neighborhood. Four houses were purchased by the Martin Luther King Housing Development Association and two others were owned by the Tacoma Housing Authority. The Martin Luther King Housing Development served as the developer and remodel of all six homes while Seafirst Bank provided government backed loans to both agencies that would later be assumed by the buyers.
