The City of Chandler Housing and Redevelopment Division receives funding to administer housing assistance programs (Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
HUD is currently operating under a continuing resolution (CR) that provides funding through February 15, 2019. We have funding for March, April and May for the housing programs and landlord payments will be made on time.
We understand that this current situation creates uncertainty for our public housing residents, HCV families, and participating owners. Please be assured that we are committed to reducing adverse impacts in support of you and our programs.
We will keep you informed as we learn more. For further information, please contact Amy Jacobson at (480) 782-3207.

Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8)
Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) is a rent subsidy program that assists eligible low-income person and their families in obtaining affordable, decent and safe housing in the private market. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the Chandler Housing Authority on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.

Family Self Sufficiency
The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program is offered by the Chandler Housing Authority to all Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Public Housing residents. Participants offers employment and other case management services designed to promote economic self-sufficiency. FSS Participants develop specific economic goals, via their Individual Training and Services Plan, and work with an FSS Coordinator to identify activities and services to help achieve these goals over a five-year period.
The City of Chandler promotes fair housing opportunities for all and ensures that everyone has the chance to live in housing of their choice free from discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, family status, or any other characteristics protected under state or local laws. City of Chandler accomplishes this through education, outreach, and training in partnership with our fair housing partners in the community.
