Scottsdale Housing Agency wait list exceeds 6,000 families seeking affordable options

By Melissa Rosequist | Scottsdale Independent

Thousands of Scottsdale families wait years to receive affordable housing vouchers, documents show, as City Council recently approved a bevy of authorizations to renew programs.

On March 17, the Scottsdale City Council approved on consent resolution No. 11670, which made way for the city to:

  • Approve the Public Housing Agency Five-Year Agency Plan for 2020-25;
  • Approve the Annual Agency Plan for FY 2020-21 for the operation of the Housing Choice Voucher Program and authorizes their submittal to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development;
  • Authorizes changes to the Scottsdale Housing Agency Administrative Plan; and
  • Authorizes the acceptance of additional Housing Choice Vouchers offered during FY 2020-21.

The Scottsdale Housing Agency reports a three- to-five-year wait time for families.

The Housing Choice Voucher increases affordable housing options for families within the Scottsdale community, according to a city staff report. The program provides housing assistance to very low- and extremely low-income residents, many of whom are elderly or disabled.
