Sunset Home Assessment Program

Conducted by the City of Renton and Rebuilding Together Seattle

Below is an application to participate in the Sunset Home Assessment, a FREE initiative conducted by the City of Renton and Rebuilding Together Seattle. You can also apply by calling the City of Renton at 425.430.6589.

This assessment is available to homeowners within the Sunset Boundary. This in-home assessment includes room-by-room evaluation of the 7 HUD “Keep It” Principles: Keep It Dry, Clean, Pest-Free, Ventilated, Safe, Containment-Free, and Maintained. This non-invasive assessment will identify evidence of major and minor home issues and provides you with low cost or no cost recommendations you can implement to mitigate many of the most common problems.

In-home assessments are performed by AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers and typically take less than an hour. We work hard to find a time that works with your busy schedule, and there are absolutely no hidden costs or fees. After the assessment, you will be presented with a prioritized list of no cost or low cost recommendations to improve the quality of your home and guide you to a safer and healthier environment. The first fifteen participants will receive a free home safety kit. 

After applying, a Rebuilding Together Seattle staff member will be in contact to schedule an assessment.
