Board of Supervisors
Pursuant to A.R.S. Section 36-1404, Maricopa County granted powers and responsibilities
to the Housing Authority of Maricopa County (HAMC) to provide affordable housing
through a range of delegated powers. In addition, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors
appoints an Advisory Board to provide community input and assist in the administration
of the Housing Authority.
HAMC is an active partner with county, local, state and federal agencies and programs,
as well as the broader public and private sectors, to carry out its mission and
strategies in meeting a wide range of affordable housing needs throughout Maricopa
Note: While reviewing files, an old 25-page typed document containing the
of the Housing Authority of Maricopa County was found. Because of its historical
content, it was decided to scan and post that document to this website. It is a
narrative summary of the minutes of the Board of Commissioners from 1942 until 1991,
written by an unknown staff member.
