The State of Arizona has excellent programs for Rental Assistance and home ownership.

A good starting point is see the Arizona Department of Housing web or call their office.

Project-Based Rental Assistance (Multifamily)

The Arizona Public Housing Authority has oversight and monitoring responsibilities for 114 subsidized properties, representing over 7,900 units, throughout the state of Arizona. The properties, which receive rental subsidies through the Section 8 Program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, offer affordable housing to households that are at or below 50% of the area median income. The subsidy or assistance stays with the property—those families residing at a Project-Based Assisted property may receive assistance as long as they are eligible and reside at the property. The assistance does not go with the family when they move. Families must be eligible under Project-Based Rental Assistance requirements. Applications are accepted at each site.

Generally, to qualify, you must meet the following criteria:
  • Annual income may not exceed the applicable income limit

  • Unit must be the household’s only residence

  • Must disclose Social Security number for all household members age 6 and up

  • Unit size standards. Family has to meet size requirements to qualify for multiple bedrooms

  • Specific eligibility criteria for project i.e., elderly, disabled

  • Documentation of citizenship or eligible immigration status

There are two Section 8 programs available through the Arizona Public Housing Authority
Project-Based Rental Assistance is available to those who meet certain criteria based on income, size of family, etc

The Arizona Department of Housing combines Federal HOME resources from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with state resources from the State Housing Trust Fund (HTF) into a single housing program called the State Housing Fund. These funds are made available for the development of affordable permanent and transitional rental housing units. Applications are accepted according to the schedule outlined in the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). Competitive funding criteria are utilized to make funding decisions. All financing is provided in the form of a loan; in return the properties must comply with long-term restrictions on rents charged and tenant incomes.
