What size of home can I apply for?

The City of Flagstaff Housing Authority can only honor requests for at least one person or couple per bedroom and no more than two people per bedroom except as a reasonable accommodation. Reasonable accommodations may include a room for medical equipment or for a live-in aide.

You may request a change in bedroom size once every twelve months after your initial application or following a change in family composition. That means, if you applied on January 1st of this year, you can change your bedroom size on January 1st of next year. A family composition change includes (but is not limited to):

  • A family member becoming pregnant
  • A family member moving away for school or work
  • Someone on the application getting married or divorced

If you are communicating a family composition change, consider if a change in bedroom size is appropriate and you may request that change following your change report. You must still qualify for the new bedroom size (one person per bedroom, no more than two, couples share a room). To request a bedroom size change, email housing@flagstaffaz.gov.
