The Rental Housing Association is a not-for-profit organization made up of rental housing providers and businesses that provide services to the rental housing industry.


Who We Are

RHA has existed in some form or another since 1935, starting out as a Seattle based association that grew into a regional resource throughout the Puget Sound area. In an effort to serve all those in the rental housing industry regardless of geographic location in Washington, RHA expanded to become a statewide association in 2012. Currently made up of more than 5,000 members, we are the premier rental housing association in Washington State.
