Island County was recognized earlier this month with an “Achievement Award” from the National Association of Counties.

The award honors “innovative, effective county government programs that enhance services for residents,” according to a press release. The National Association of Counties recognized Island County’s new Housing Support Center.

“It is exciting for our local efforts to be honored by the NACo Achievement Awards,” Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said. “The Housing Support Center has removed many of the barriers to services and created a one stop shop for those struggling to find housing in our community.”
