Claim Filing

Washington state law requires that you notify the Sedro-Woolley Housing Authority of a claim prior to filing a lawsuit against it. SWHA has 60 days after a claim has been submitted to accept or reject the claim. If SWHA takes no action, the claim is deemed rejected.

To direct a claim to SWHA, complete the Tort Claim Form (PDF) and mail it to:

Sedro-Woolley Housing Authority
Risk Management — Tort Claims 
Attn: Craig Violante
600 Andover Park W
Tukwila, WA 98188

SWHA will not accept claim forms submitted to any other location. Provide as much information as possible with the form, including copies of all repair bills or estimates, medical bills, photographs, and any other supporting documents. Please remember that the investigative process may take some time.
