Section 8 Office Temporarily Using Appointment-Only System Effective April 1

Many of our families, landlords and staff are concerned about the spread of the Coronavirus.  In order to keep you and staff healthy and safe, we have implemented an appointment-only system effective Wednesday, April 1.  Please keep in mind that the waiting list is closed.  If you are currently a part of the program, the best way to make an appointment is to directly contact your Housing Specialist by calling or emailing the staff listed on the attached Quadel Phoenix Contact Information. ​Please click on this link for a list of staff phone numbers and email addresses. Current participants and owners can also email our dedicated appointment mail at​ S8appointment@phoenix.gov or call our dedicated appointment phone line at 602-262-6040.​​​

In addition, new email ID’s have been created for participants and landlords to electronically send in information.The Section 8 office will be installing a secure drop box for participants to drop off information or they can send it electronically. The city will be paying all landlords timely through direct deposits (ACH payments) and is encouraging all landlords to sign up for electronic payments versus receiving a check.
