Reporting Fraud

If you are aware of fraud in a housing program, please let us know. You can download a reporting form or call 360-694-2501 and tell the receptionist you wish to report fraud. We ask that you provide as much information as possible. Although our budget does not allow for a fraud investigator, we will look into your report as much as possible. Because of confidentiality rules, we will not be able to report back to you on the outcome of your report.
