Strategies to Address Homelessness
The Phoenix City Council requested a strategic plan to focus on strategies for persons experiencing homelessness as well as developing best practices to mitigate impacts to surrounding communities and neighborhoods.
Read the Strategies to Address Homelessness Plan.
In January 2021, a task force made up of neighborhood leaders, service providers, and homeless advocates began meeting to prioritize and provide recommendations on the City’s efforts to deploy the Plan. Throughout 2021, the Task Force met to review and evaluate the City’s Strategies to Address Homelessness Plan. The recommendations were made in consensus among the Task Force members and were presented to the Phoenix City Manager as well to the Phoenix City Council Community and Cultural Investment Subcommittee on April 6, 2022.

Since 2003, the City of Phoenix Human Services Department has implemented an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Campaign. Every year millions of dollars in tax refunds go unclaimed because people are unaware of the various credits available to them such as the EITC, a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. There are
several ways to get free tax help. To learn more, visit phoenix.gov/eitc.
