Phoenix Section 8 Housing Information - City UpdateThe city of Phoenix Housing Department will accept online applications for the Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 8 through Friday, Aug. 12 at 5 p.m. Once the application period closes, 10,000 applicants will be randomly selected using a lottery system and will be placed on the wait list. "We are thrilled that Phoenix can now offer this program electronically versus having residents stand in long lines and fill out applications by hand," said Cindy Stotler, Housing Department Director. "Customer service comes first and in order to better serve our customers, the online application will be offered in English and Spanish, residents will have several days to apply, and everyone will have an equal opportunity to get on the wait list through a lottery selection process." Residents are required to complete their applications ONLINE ONLY at phoenix.gov/housing. Public facilities such as libraries and community centers will provide computer access at no cost. The city's HCV program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and is available for low-income individuals and families to provide safe and decent affordable housing. Program participants pay at least 30 percent of their adjusted gross monthly income toward their rent to a private landlord of their choice and the program pays the landlord the remaining balance of the rent. Families from the Section 8 wait list are selected in accordance with HUD requirements and local preferences.

Phoenix Municipal Court Compliance Assistance ProgramThe Compliance Assistance Program (CAP) is a new program offered by the Phoenix Municipal Court. CAP is designed to help you resolve past due traffic fines that are owed to the Court that may be preventing the reinstatement of your Arizona driver’s license. CAP allows you to enter into a payment plan for all your civil traffic, civil and parking charges without having to see a judge. If you make a required down payment and agree to make affordable monthly payments, the Court will notify the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) that you are in compliance with your civil traffic fines and fees due to the Court. You may then contact MVD to find out what you must do to reinstate your driving privileges.
