Phoenix Emergency Assistance Program
How Can You Help?
The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
Through the Phoenix Emergency Assistance Program, the City of Phoenix provides services to low income households, including eviction prevention and move-in assistance. Typically, eligibility for assistance is restricted to one time per 12 months. In 2011-2012, 1,761 households received rental assistance to prevent eviction.
Funding for this program comes from the Department of Human Services budget, and includes both federal (CDBG) sources and local sources of funds. Approximately one-third of funding, $5 million, each year is local funding from the city’s annual budget.
