Can you expedite my application due to my circumstances?

No, we do not expedite applications due to individual circumstances. Each applicant family must be placed on the waiting list and go through the eligibility interview process based on the date and time they applied in order to receive housing.

If you currently have Section 8 and are using portability to move to Flagstaff, see the Section 8 tab, "S8 Participant Info," for more information. If you are a veteran experiencing homelessness, you may have additional options through the VASH Program and should contact a veteran services provider; in Flagstaff, call Megan Studer, (928) 499-0284 or (800) 949-1005 ex 5692. See our dedicated Emergency Housing page for more resources.
