Recurring Updates & Deadlines

Monthly Deadlines for Low-Income Public Housing Residents

Monthly Rent is due the first business day of the month. Business days are Monday through Friday except for holidays observed by City of Flagstaff. Neither Late Fees nor Court Action are being observed at this time.

Recertification Packets are due the 15th day of the month. If this is a weekend or holiday, residents are encouraged to turn in their packet on the business day before the 15th whenever possible.

If your household has experienced a change in income, report these within ten (10) calendar days. There is currently no deadline for submitting changes.

We include Office Closures in the calendars of our Public Housing Newsletters. Only if an office closure is the result of a holiday or leave will it impact when rent is due. Rent is always due at the office of your housing specialist.
