Section 8 Vouchers, Apartments, and Waiting Lists in Chandler, Arizona

Public Housing Agencies operate federally assisted affordable housing programs at local levels on behalf of HUD. Notably, housing agencies are responsible for managing Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Public Housing, and Project-Based Voucher waiting lists within their jurisdiction.

Eligibility for the project-based program is similar to the voucher programs, but waiting list and application policies will vary depending on the landlord.
