The City of Mesa’s Public Housing Authority administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, Security Deposit Assistance program, and other rental assistance programs.

Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program

The HCV program assists eligible low-income families or individuals in obtaining affordable, decent, sanitary and safe housing in Mesa. Rent is based on the household’s income. The portion of rent paid by the Housing Authority is paid directly to the landlord and the participant pays the difference towards the contract rent.

 

Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Voucher (HUD-VASH) program

The HUD-VASH program is for chronically homeless veterans and their families. The Veterans Administration (VA) in Phoenix provides case management and clinic services at its medical centers and community clinics. For these and other veteran services, go to the VA Community Resource & Referral Center at 1500 E. Thomas Rd., Suite 106, Phoenix, AZ 85014, Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., or call 602-248-6040 or 602-568-7843.

 

Project-Based Voucher (PBV) program

The PBV program provides additional housing opportunities for very low- and extremely low-income families and individuals. It gives rental assistance to specific housing units that are determined to be affordable, decent, sanitary and safe. We have project-based vouchers for: Escobedo at Verde Vista, 435 N Hibbert, Mesa, AZ 85201 and La Mesita Apartments, 2254 W Main St., Mesa, AZ 85201.

 

Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS)

FSS is a voluntary HUD program designed to assist families in the voucher rental assistance program to achieve self-sufficiency through education, training, and employment. Participants will identify career goals and establish a plan to achieve those goals, connect with community resources and services, and receive case management services and encouragement. Please visit our page for Current Participants for more information.

 

Family Unification Program (FUP)

This program assists families involved in the child welfare system who face unstable housing and homelessness. It also serves youth ages 18 to 24 who have left foster care and lack adequate shelter, who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Contact your caseworker with the Department of Child Safety (DCS) for more information.

 

Shelter Plus Care (S+C)

The S+C program provides permanent housing along with supportive services to homeless people with disabilities and their families. The goals are to increase housing stability, skills and/or income, and obtain a greater self-sufficiency. Applicants are referred to the City of Mesa Housing Authority by Save the Family. For more information, contact Save the Family at (480) 898-0228.

 

Security and Utility Deposit program

This program aids low-income Mesa families and individuals with the refundable portion of their security deposit.

In order to qualify for the refundable portion of their utility deposit, families and individuals will need to be approved. Payments are made directly to the landlord and utility provider.

 

IHOM (Increasing Housing Opportunities in Mesa)

IHOM provides homeless families and individuals with their application fees and utility assistance. IHOM also provides an incentive to landlords to assist current housing assistance participants with vacancy payments.

  • Application fees: Current participant or applicant who is a homeless, low income family or individual (up to $50 per application).
  • Utility assistance: Current participant with zero-income and previously homeless may apply for assistance with their utility bills for the first 3 months after move-in.
  • Vacancy payments: Landlords may apply for vacancy payments (up to seven days and $500 maximum), when they lease their unit to a current voucher participant or applicant.
