Community Development administers funds and programs that promote the improvement of the quality of life for families who are low and moderate-income and assists in the stabilization of Chandler neighborhoods.
Community Development does so by implementing affordable housing programs, partnering with nonprofit, faith-based agencies and other City departments to address and meet basic and critical human needs, and providing resident assistance.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Division works closely with the community and the Chandler Human Relations Commission to develop diversity programs and events. The City's goal is to work towards the elimination of prejudice and discrimination among all citizens within our community regardless of personal identifying markers.
Programs include the diversity education mini-grants totaling $10,000 for youth education, eight For Our City initiatives and more than 25 cultural events and community forums held annually.
Housing and Redevelopment
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 more than 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 formerly homeless.
Housing and Redevelopment
