City of Flagstaff Housing Section Mission
The mission of the Housing Section is to develop a viable urban community by providing decent and adequate housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities for the Flagstaff community, especially for low- and moderate-income persons.
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:
- 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. Use the navigation panel to direct your search.
