Arizona Public Housing Authority - Section 8
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.
Housing Choice Voucher Program is available only in Yavapai County through the Arizona Public Housing Authority. The waiting list is currently closed for the state's allotment of 89 vouchers. For information on availability in other Arizona jurisdictions, contact the housing authority for that jurisdiction.
If you currently have a voucher and are moving to Arizona, you must first get approval from the housing authority that issued your voucher and then contact the housing authority in Arizona where you intend to move.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is warning about a new scam to steal from people seeking Section 8 housing assistance.
Scammers have posted fake Section 8 waiting-list lottery sites that ask for personal information and even fees but don’t enroll victims on lists. Some offer housing listings in exchange for a month’s rent via wire transfer or prepaid card.
