Housing Phoenix Plan

Addressing the Housing Shortage in Phoenix​

​​The Housing Phoenix Plan​ documents the findings of the city's Affordable Housing Initiative, which launched in 2019 with the goal of completing a housing needs assessment​ and establishing policy recommendations to address the city's current housing challenge. Through extensive research and community outreach, the plan identifies the community's housing needs, documents the housing gap, compiles nationwide best practices, and recommends nine policy initiatives to reach the goal of creating a stronger and more vibrant Phoenix through increased housing options for all.
