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 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.
