Reading the PDN recently I observed that the Port Angeles city council allotted a sum of their American Rescue Plan Act funds in support of Habitat For Humanity.

Finding this to be a commendable action I decided to look into how Sequim is allotting their ARPA funds.

Upon doing some research I found that the city of Sequim has also received ARPA Funding.

The funding is being used for a new shop, information technology upgrades, remodeling part of city hall and other items.

My question to the city is, why are they not supporting Habitat at a time when we need to support the building of low-cost housing?

I have to seriously question why these funds are not including Habitat For Humanity in the dispersal of funds.

I believe the city needs to relook the use of these funds to something that benefits the entire community.
