The city's Housing Choice Voucher 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 monthly income toward their rent to a private landlord of their choice. The program will pay the landlord the remaining balance of the rent.
Housing Choice Vouchers allow voucher recipients to choose and rent units from private landlords and owners. If a landlord has units within Phoenix city limits, they are welcome to participate.
Phoenix Housing Department pays a fixed amount of the rent to the landlord each month. The tenant pays the difference between this subsidy and the total rent, in addition to any utilities not included in the rent. In general, tenants pay at least 30 percent -- but no more than 40 percent -- of their monthly adjusted income for rent and utilities.
