Chandler’s Housing and Redevelopment Division expanded its Increasing Rental Opportunities in Chandler program, according to a news release from the city. Previously, for each property rented to a Housing Choice Voucher—also known as Section 8—participant, new landlords received a $400 sign-on incentive. The incentive now has been increased to $1,000 per new property rented. Existing landlords who also renew leases to HCV families are now eligible to receive the $1,000 sign-on incentive, according to the release.

In addition, the program expanded to include families participating in the Emergency Housing Voucher, or EHV, and TBRA, or Tenant Based Rental Assistance, programs, according to the release.


“Chandler currently has more than 80 families in the HCV, EHV and TBRA programs who are searching for housing,” said Amy Jacobson, housing and redevelopment manager in the release. “It is becoming increasingly difficult to find low- to moderate-income housing within city limits, and we’re hopeful with this enhanced program, more landlords will see the benefits of renting to our qualified families.”

For more information on becoming a participating landlord, including a complete list of benefits, or to apply for the program, visit http://chandleraz.gov/landlords.

Interested landlords also may contact Lilia Gonzalez with Chandler Housing at [email protected] or 480-782-3248 to address any specific questions.
