Funding quality affordable housing and community revitalization to benefit all Arizonans and ensuring safe manufactured buildings throughout the state.
OUR CORE VALUES
An Arizona with safe, inclusive, livable communities and affordable housing options for all.
The Arizona Department of Housing is a cabinet-level agency created in 2002 by the State legislature to serve as the State’s primary agency to address housing issues. Primarily funded through Federal resources and fees, the agency administers and allocates housing and community development resources, serves as the state Public Housing Authority and Performance-Based Contract Administrator, and regulates Arizona’s manufactured housing and building industry.
We maximize efficiency to meet the housing insecurity challenges our state faces. We invest in housing that is shovel-ready and programs that provide the quickest occupancy solutions.
We marshal resources by utilizing every available housing investment to its fullest, and by leveraging public-private partnerships, including with the state’s Industrial Development Authorities and the state’s business and philanthropic sector -all while remaining transparent, accountable, responsive, and nimble.
We administer programs to create, preserve, and invest in affordable housing statewide. Rather than building and owning housing, we manage programs that convey funding to for-profit and non-profit developers, faith-based organizations, homeless service providers, tribal governments, and local jurisdictions who apply for funding and meet criteria developed by state and federal law. These community partners, in turn, build and own the housing our state needs.
We collaborate with our fellow state agencies and homeless service providers and housing development sector through the Governor’s new Interagency and Community Council on Homelessness and Housing and continue to engage with our stakeholders to improve the affordable housing landscape in our state.
We couple innovation with what’s tried and true by embracing new housing technologies (like 3D printed homes, and container homes) while also revitalizing the modular housing of yesteryear as an affordable housing typology to meet today’s housing crisis.
We explore flexibilities with the resources the Department stewards that are underutilized while also ensuring the Department’s regulatory framework is upheld for the safety and security of Arizonans seeking safe and affordable homes.
