​Welcome to the City of Phoenix Housing Department. Our programs provide conventional public housing, affordable rental apartments and single-family homes to more than 25,000 area residents. This includes partnering with non-profit and for-profit community organizations on the preservation and development of affordable housing units. Our partnerships have led to sustainable and affordable rental housing and home ownership opportunities. The enthusiasm and dedication of our Housing Department staff and Executive Management team make it all possible. We look forward to continuing to provide Phoenix residents with quality housing options.
