Our Mission

Housing is an important community issue in Flagstaff. The limited supply of housing for low- and moderate- income residents affects our quality of life and our ability to grow and develop economically. The City of Flagstaff Housing Section works to address the shortage with a number of programs and tools designed to do the following:

  • Coordinate with community partners for crisis housing
  • Assist low-income households with affordable renting resources
  • Increase housing inventory and availability
  • Economically stabilize lower income families through the benefits of homeownership
  • Support efforts for safe and adequate homes
  • Revitalize community neighborhoods

The City of Flagstaff Housing Section includes a variety of programs to serve families and developers throughout the housing continuum of homelessness to homeownership. Many programs are delivered in collaboration with community partners and other agencies.

If you have questions about any of our programs, email Housing or call 928-213-2730.

Emergency Housing

Emergency or crisis housing is provided through our community partnerships with Flagstaff Shelter Services and the Coconino County Front Door Program. Agencies that provide emergency rental and utility assistance are listed as well.

Affordable Renting

Affordable rental units are overseen by the Flagstaff Housing Authority, which manages Low-Income Public Housing, Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers, and Clark Homes. Low-Income Housing Tax Credit properties (LIHTC) provide additional low-income housing. Click here for information for potential LIHTC renters and here for information for potential LIHTC developers.

Homebuying Assistance

Home buying assistance and education are provided in partnership with Housing Solutions of Northern Arizona. This includes the Community Homebuyer Assistance Program, City of Flagstaff's Employer Assisted Housing, and the Community Land Trust.

Fair Housing

Fair Housing complaints are important to us; we track these and refer concerned parties to legal support agencies. The Housing Section cannot provide legal guidance, but often refers to the Arizona Landlord Tenant Act Handbook (PDF).

Community Development Block Grants

Managing Community Development Block Grants serves our community by funding our partner agencies.
