Phoenix is Fastest-Growing U.S. City; Here's Where They Come Fromhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/ced/851Community and Economic Development1/23/2020 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/851/NEWSROOM_CED_0023.jpgPhoenix is Fastest-Growing U.S. City; Here's Where They Come From<div class="ExternalClass063B9942E2844186885073BF3F1D48B7"><html> <p>​More than one-quarter of a million new faces are calling Phoenix “home” since the 2010 Decennial Census. The city’s population of 1.7 million makes it the fastest-growing American city. Yet, finding a Phoenix native is still a challenge. More than three of four new residents move to Phoenix from elsewhere. <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">In that same period, n</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">early one million new</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> faces now </span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">call "Arizona" home, according to the Census bureau. Where were the prior homes before Phoenix?</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <em>By Eric Jay Toll for PHXNewsroom</em> <br> </p> <p>Data generated from website analytics say that Phoenix is one city where far-fewer plan to leave when compared to ​other major U.S. markets. With 22 percent of its renters looking to go elsewhere, only San Diego, with 21 percent of its renters, has a lower percentage of renters looking to leave.  Most of those who want to leave California plan to come to Phoenix, according to the <a href="https://www.apartmentlist.com/rentonomics/2020-q1-renter-migration-report/" target="_blank">ApartmetList</a> study.<br></p> <div> <p>Phoenix comes in second lowest on the places apartment dwellers want to leave. That’s according to aggregated data from ApartmentList. The analysis reports that a third of all new renters moving to Phoenix come from Los Angeles.<br></p><h3>Census says almost 70,000 Californians left state last year​​<br></h3> <p>While the value of this type of data is limited to the source’s clients and the data points selected for the aggregation, it echoes 2018 data from the <a href="https://www.census.gov/topics/population/migration/guidance/metro-to-metro-migration-flows.html" target="_blank">U.S. Census Bureau</a> for metros and the 2019 state-to-state population movement. <a href="https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-kits/2019/national-state-estimates.html" target="_blank">Census data</a> say nearly 70,000 Californians moved to Arizona last year. <br></p> <p>ApartmentList data say that more than eight times as many Angelenos, 33.2 percent, moved into Phoenix in 2019 as moved in from Riverside, California, 4.6 percent, the second city on the list of inbound renters’ place of origin. Third position Chicago generated 4 percent of Phoenix’s move-ins. The data also say that while 22 percent of current Phoenix apartment dwellers plan to relocate into other metros, among U.S. metros, only San Diego has a lower percentage.<br></p> <p>The renter data are compiled by analyzing a website user’s current place of residence with their ApartmentList searches into other cities. The data are limited to renters. Census data are estimates generated from a sampling of people who have actually moved from one metro to another. These data include renters and home buyers.<br></p><h3>Phoenicians moving out go to L.A., Tucson and Prescott​​<br></h3> <p>Los Angeles, Tucson and Prescott are the cities outbound Phoenix residents searched most often, according to ApartmentList. However, of Valley residents searching for a new place to rent, 77.6 percent looked somewhere within the Phoenix metro area. Only 22.4 percent looked to leave.<br></p> <p>In comparison, a little more than two-thirds of Denver and Austin residents looked to stay in their metro areas; in Chicago, more than 40 percent planned to leave the city. Nearly two-thirds look to leave the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. <br></p> <p>Those later data coincide with a study reported in the <a href="https://sf.curbed.com/2019/2/20/18233498/poll-2019-leaving-san-francisco-oakland-silicon-valley" target="_blank">Curbed San Francisco</a> reported that more than half of Bay Area residents want to leave the area.  <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-california-population/half-of-california-voters-have-considered-leaving-over-housing-costs-politics-poll-idUSKBN1WC2DG" target="_blank">Reuters ​</a>reported that more than half of California voters would consider leaving over housing costs.<br></p><h3>A third of those looking to leave cities are looking to Phoenix<br></h3> <p>There are other interesting patterns in the ApartmentList data. Across the U.S., 34 percent of those looking to rent elsewhere are looking in Phoenix, tying with Los Angeles for 12th in the U.S. Denver topped the list with 48 percent of those looking elsewhere including Denver in their search. For Denver, however, 31 percent of its interested renters are looking to other metros, compared to 21 percent for San Diego and 22 percent for Phoenix, the first and second metros for fewest looking to leave.<br></p> <p>Orlando is on the bottom of that list, with 50 percent of its looking renters searching for a metro somewhere else for a new home. Orlando is followed by Riverside, California; Detroit, Chicago, and Charlotte, North Carolina.<br></p> <p>Census data also track immigrants to metros from other nations. Over the last five years, over 10,000 Asians, including Indians, moved into the Valley. That pace actually makes Asian nations the second-largest source of new residents for Phoenix. Central American immigrants, 7,300, would position as the fourth-largest source. Almost 6,000 came from Mexico and Canada, which would fall into the fifth-largest position.<br></p> </div> <h4>Top 10 Sources of New Phoenix Area Residents (2013-2018)<br></h4> <div> <table

City of Phoenix Provides Millions in Rental Assistance, Ramps Up Efforts to Get Additional Funds to Residents More Quicklyhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/human-services/2004Human Services7/30/2021 10:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2004/Newsroom_House_001 (002).pngCity of Phoenix Provides Millions in Rental Assistance, Ramps Up Efforts to Get Additional Funds to Residents More Quickly<div class="ExternalClass021D69DEE2C04D4ABE61E3A61D460783"><html>It's a story playing out in homes across our community.  Five months into the COVID-19 pandemic, a Phoenix woman lost her job.  Finding a new job was challenging.  With five kids at home, all trying to do remote learning since their schools were closed made it even more difficult.  After several months, the unemployment benefits were not enough to cover rent and utilities for the single mom, and she found herself thousands of dollars behind. <br><br>That's where the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program comes into her story.  Earlier this year, the Phoenix City Council approved spending $51 million dollars in Federal ERA funds to assist families.  This family is one of more than 3,100 Phoenix households so far to receive assistance.  This mom and her children received $12,000 to cover owed rent and another $3,000 for unpaid utilities.  The city has disbursed nearly $24 million dollars, more money than any other jurisdiction in Arizona.<br><br>As the federal ban on some evictions is set to expire Saturday, the city is moving at a faster pace to get assistance into the hands of those Phoenix families who need it most.  <br><br>City staff managing the ERA program helped 59% more people last week than they did during weekly average in April.  The average financial assistance per household is $7,500.<br><br>In addition to the $24 million of ERA funds given to Phoenix families, nearly $15 million more in rent and utility assistance from other programs has gone to Phoenix residents during the pandemic, pushing the total help to nearly $40 million dollars.<br><br>“We know the need is great and that's why the Mayor and City Council expect us to take steps to process applications faster," said Gina Montes, Deputy City Manager.  Under the direction of Montes and the City's Human Services Department, the city is working to add additional hours of operation, more staffing and auditing processes so applications can be approved more quickly.<br><br>There are two options for applying for assistance.  The city has partnered with the non-profit <a href="https://wildfireaz.org/" target="_blank">Wildfire</a> to double the number of families who can be helped.  Wildfire is using an online portal to allow residents to do the paperwork over the internet, however due to high demand, the portal is not currently taking new applications.  Wildfire is processing the more than 2,000 applications they currently have and expect to reopen the portal again in August.<br><br>The city is arranging appointments and working with individuals over the phone to meet the stringent requirements mandated by the Federal government.  Residents should call 602-534-AIDE (2433) on Monday's beginning at 8 a.m. to schedule a telephone appointment.<br><br>Human Services Director Marchelle Franklin recounts a story one her staff members told her about a call he made to a resident who had lost his job and got behind on his rent.  “When our employee told the man the City would be able to pay his past-due rent, the man said 'this has lifted a weight off my shoulders.  Thank you, thank you thank you'," Franklin said.  “The man told my employee this was like having a four-leaf clover, a rabbit's foot and other lucky items all at once." <br><br><p>You can find specific details on the program, including eligibility criteria, on the city's <a href="/humanservices/rental-assistance" target="_blank">Emergency Rental Assistance Program</a> website.<br><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/humanservicesNews
