The Housing and Redevelopment Division assists more than 500 households through a federal rental housing assistance (Housing Choice Voucher, also known as section 8) program. We also develop and manage over 300 units of affordable rental housing properties. The majority of our program funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Our programs and properties are targeted to assist low, very low, and extremely low-income households. The vast majority of our client households are extremely low-income families, seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, and formally homeless.

Parks play a critical role in the quality of life in Chandler. Parks support the environment, public health, the economy, education and promote community cohesion. With this in mind, it is the City’s goal to provide at least one neighborhood park per square mile of residential development making play easily accessible for the entire community. In addition to its Neighborhood, Community and Regional Parks, Chandler also has several specialty facilities including four dog parks, three spray pads, one bike park, one skate park, two disc golf courses, walking and biking trails and two urban fishing lakes.
