Public Housing 

Public Housing is federal housing program in which the Chandler Housing Authority owns and manages 303 units consisting of single family homes, four apartments, and one elderly apartments.  Low-income families, seniors and persons with disabilities pay approximately 30% of their income for rent and utilities. 


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.


Fair Housing

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.
