EHSF advocates primarily at the state and federal levels of government for legislation and funding solutions that strengthen the system of diverse and integrated services needed for our Eastside communities to thrive.
The Forum prioritizes issues that fit within the four categories below as well as a few priorities that cut across all categories.
- Support Access to Basic Needs and Health Services
- Make Homelessness Rare, Brief and One-Time by Making Housing More Accessible
- Support Older Adults and People with Disabilities
- Strengthen Early Learning and Youth Services
This page shows our recent legislative agendas and session results.
In August, the Legislative Committee conducted a survey to get input on Eastside needs and inform our 2022 state legislative agenda. The survey results are here. The Committee also collaborated with the Alliance of Eastside Agencies on an event to review the survey results and seek further input on Eastside needs. Notes from that event are here.
