Homeless Councils

The Washington State Advisory Council on Homelessness (SACH) and the Interagency Council on Homelessness (ICH) meet quarterly to collaborate and inform state policy to end homelessness.

SACH is a governor-appointed advisory council. It was created by Executive Order 15-01 in 1994 and revised in 2015. Applications for appointments to boards or commissions can be found on the Office of the Governor’s website.

ICH members are state agency representatives appointed by agency directors. ICH was created in 2006 in statute RCW 43.185C.180.
