The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) was established in 2002 to administer programs that create, preserve, and invest in affordable housing statewide, fund housing and community revitalization, and aid in building stronger communities to benefit all Arizonans. Rather than building and owning housing, the agency manages programs that convey funding to community housing partners who, in turn, build and own the housing our state needs. The majority of ADOH programs are federally funded.
Most funding is geared toward lower income households and neighborhoods and the majority of agency resources are passed through in the form of loans, grants, tax credits, and other subsidies to housing partners such as for-profit and non-profit housing developers, local and tribal governments, public housing authorities, faith-based organizations, homeless service providers, and other groups who provide affordable housing and community services. Recipients must apply to the agency for funding and meet specific criteria developed by state and federal law.
ADOH provides opportunities for Arizonans to live in their own homes by developing and implementing funding options that lead to strong, vibrant, affordable communities.
Our Customer Liaisons are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to assist the public with their housing questions.
