PHOENIX — The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved a $10 million investment into low-income housing in Chandler, the board announced Monday.
It’s expected that the investment will benefit upwards of 400 people each year through helping families and individuals by expanding affordable housing options in Chandler.
The funding comes from the federal American Rescue Plan Act, which is meant to assist citizens across the country in a post-pandemic world.
“Since housing costs are unlikely to decrease to pre-pandemic levels, Maricopa County is funding housing solutions to help income-qualified households keep pace with rising rents,” chairman of the Board of Supervisors Clint Hickman of District 4 said. “This project with the city of Chandler will provide affordable housing options and revitalize vacant parcels of land.”
