Amid much construction in Pinal, housing needs remain

By Mark Cowling | Maricopa Monitor

FLORENCE — Despite all the houses being built in Pinal County, there are a lot of people who are having a hard time finding a place to live.

The county could use a lot more one-bedroom apartments. “They just really don’t exist, much,” Pinal County Housing Department Director Rolanda Cephas said. It’s hard for a single person or elderly couple who only need one bedroom to find one. If they try to rent the next size up, it may cost them an extra $300 a month, Cephas said.

The Pinal County Housing Department owns and manages 139 housing units scattered throughout the county in Maricopa, Eloy, Apache Junction, Coolidge and Casa Grande. The department also administers the Housing Choice Voucher Program, formerly known as Section 8, which is a federally-funded program to assist low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford quality housing. In all, the department is allotted 584 vouchers.
