There are two main affordable rental assistance areas wherein the Arizona Public Housing Authority (APHA) has knowledge, limited oversight, or may offer assistance:
HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM
The APHA is the Public Housing Authority (PHA) for Yavapai County, Arizona. We administer Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) for this County only. We do not own or manage any property. The Waiting List is currently closed for the APHA’s allotment of HCVs. For information on the availability of affordable housing through PHAs in other Counties/jurisdictions, we encourage contacting the PHA that serves the applicable area. There are approximately 24 PHAs in the State of Arizona. If you have an HCV and are seeking to move to Yavapai County, you must first obtain approval from your initiating PHA, and then contact the APHA for approval. For information on the availability of affordable housing at these PHAs, you may contact HousingSearch.AZ.gov and you will need to contact each PHA individually.
PROJECT-BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE
The APHA is the Contract Administrator for the State of Arizona for a portfolio of Project-Based Section 8 properties around the state. The portfolio consists of approximately 8,000 units. We do not own or manage any of these properties. Each property is owned/managed by private/public Owner/Agents and each property has a Housing Assistance Payments Contract with HUD. For information on the availability of affordable housing at these properties, you may contact HousingSearch.AZ.gov and you will need to contact each property individually.
Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) does not discriminate on the basis of disability, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status in the admission access, treatment, or employment in any programs or activities.
