B.1 Deconcentration and Other Policies that Govern Eligibility, Selection, and Admissions
HCV TO INCLUDE MAINSTREAM PREFERENCE IN ITS REGULARY PROGRAMMING (NONELDERLY DISABLED
INSTITUTIONALIZED/HOMELESS OR IN DANGER OF BEING INSTITUTIONALIZED/HOMELESS
HAMC is instituting a preference pursuant to HUD Notice 2013‐21, to establish a preference for those who meet the HUD
definition of homelessness. Referrals for the homeless preference will be provided through Maricopa County/Phoenix HUDfunded
Continuum of Care. Additionally, the preference is based on the understanding that:
1. this preference will be subordinate to the HUD regulatory preference for persons who are displaced by government action or
a presidentially‐declared disaster; and,
2. these preferences are merely preferences, and not requirements, for housing at Casa Bonitas. All applicants that meet the
normal eligibility requirements for the Section 8 program are still eligible for housing and, if there are no preference‐eligible
residents on the waiting list, owners will not hold units open because of the residency preference. In these situations, owners
must admit the next program‐eligible household on the waiting list.
A number of HAMC properties converted from Public Housing to PBV or PBRA in recent years, and once the property converts,
eligible residents have a new “choice mobility” option which allows the resident to request a Housing Choice Voucher the
household can use to select a rental unit in the private market. Under the PBV program, the resident may request an HCV after
living in a RAD converted property for 1 year. Under the PBRA program, they can request HCV after having lived at the RADconverted
property for 2 years. Residents exercising their choice mobility rights will receive priority on HAMC’s waitlist.
HAMC instituted its Choice Mobility waitlist for eligible.
B.1 Rent Determination
HCV Administrative Policy Chapter 10.5 Payment Standards for the Voucher Program
The Payment Standard is used to calculate the housing assistance payment for a family and is based on Fair Market Rents (FMR)
published by HUD on an annual basis. Maricopa County is included in the Phoenix Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMA) Fair Market
HAMC will maintain the payment standards at a minimum of 90% and a maximum of 110% of the published FMR. HAMC will
review and analyze the payment standards on an annual basis but will not revise the payment standards each year when the new
FMR’s are published if the current payment standards remain at a minimum of 90% and a maximum of 100% of the newly
When reviewing the payment standard on an annual basis, HAMC will consider the available budget authority and determine if a
reduction in payment standards is needed including an amount below 90% of the published FMR, to assist a maximum number
of households up to HAMC’s baseline allocation. If it is determined that payment standards below 90% of FMR is needed, a
waiver will be secured from HUD with corresponding justification.
Case by case reviews of a higher payment standard will be considered as a reasonable accommodation for a family that includes
a person with disabilities. If appropriate, HAMC will approve a payment standard up to 120% of the FMR.
Effective January 1, 2019, HAMC increased the payment standard for 1 and 2 bedroom units to 100% of the FMR, and 0, 3, and 4
bedroom units to 90% of the FMR, updating the Payment Standards as follows:

Tenant Based Rental Assistance
HAMC and the Maricopa County Human Services Department may expand a pilot program for tenant based rental assistance
for individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Project Based Vouchers
HAMC intends to use 30 Project Based Vouchers on non‐RAD units at its Heritage at Surprise (PIC Development Nos.
AZ009000007 / AZ009000015). Heritage is a 100‐unit PHA‐owned project that will include a HAP for 70 scattered site units and
a separate HAP for 30 PBVs. HAMC will have sufficient budget authority available at contract execution estimated to occur
HAMC intends to use 40 Project Based Vouchers at its Norton Circle development. HAMC is proposing to redevelop the project,
increasing density from 46 units to 70 units by building a new energy efficient project with amenities competitive in the rental
market. The redevelopment of Norton Circle would be financed using Tax Exempt Private Activity Bonds issued by the Industrial
Development Authority of Maricopa County (IDA), 4% or 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits and National Housing Trust Funds
from the Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH). The project may be developed in partnership with Gorman and Company
who worked with HAMC it it’s RAD conversions and implementing the development strategy with HAMC.
H.M. Watson Homes has been in service since 1958 and has 20 units; 1 one‐bedroom unit, 7 two‐bedroom units, 10 three
bedroom units and 2 four‐bedroom units. HAMC is in the process of evaluating the best re‐use of the property given the
changing dynamic of the Buckeye community and their housing needs. The Agency is exploring the possibility of using a
combination of PBVs, HUD Section 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program or engaging the Healthcare community to
providing integrated supportive housing for people with disabilities.
MARO – MRP REDEVELOPMENT BLURB
HAMC may request proposals or consider proposals for up to 100 project based vouchers. Locales are to be determined, but
will be in areas determined higher opportunity for the purposes of increasing housing options in the Maricopa County
New or Expanded Rental Assistance Programming
The HAMC expanded its partnership with Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care in its BRIDGE to Permanency Programming from
initially 50 subsidies, then to 100. HAMC will seek to contractually increase to 150. To date, 60 participants have moved on
(“bridged”) to the traditional HCV program.
HAMC was successful in its bid to partner with the PHX VA in delivering affordable housing with an array of supportive services
to Veterans experiencing homelessness. HAMC was awarded 5 vouchers to be administered in partnership with the VA.
HAMC was also successful in its application to HUD for Mainstream Vouchers. Effective March 1, 2019, 45 Mainstream
vouchers will be administered by HAMC in partnership with Ability360, Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care, AHCCCS, Maricopa
County Human Services, and Department of Economic Security/Division of Developmental Disabilities and will focus on
delivering affordable housing and necessary supportive services to non‐elderly disabled persons who are institutionalized, in
danger of being institutionalized, homeless, or in danger of becoming homeless.
The State of Arizona’s Medicaid Department AHCCCS, the regional behavioral healthcare authority called Mercy Care, and the
Housing Authorities of Maricopa County, Phoenix, and Tempe came together to house 100 street homeless and call their efforts
Project h2 Healthcare and Housing. Arizona’s Medicaid Department will pay rental subsidy through Mercy Care for the initial
12‐24 months. The Housing Authorities will then “bridge” the 100 individuals onto their permanent Housing Choice Voucher
programs once they are stabilized with help from their health plans and supported housing providers.
HAMC and the Arizona Department of Child Safety partnered in an application to HUD for Family Unification Vouchers. Also
effective March 1, 2019, these 29 vouchers will enable HAMC to help children be safe and secure and not subject to neglect
because of homelessness or inadequate housing. These vouchers will also enable HAMC in being be a resource to youth who
have left the foster care system.
HAMC may use rental subsidies (HCV, VASH, FUP, Mainstream, Bridge to Permanency, TBRA, H2) programs for properties
managed, operated or developed to provide housing solutions for low income families, seniors, veterans or persons with
HAMC may provide a HCV for households living in HAMC properties who may need to be relocated because of redevelopment
or development activities.
In accordance with the Housing Opportunities Through Modernization Act (HOTMA), PHA owned units may be assisted under
the PBV program without following a competitive process and HAMC may add eligible units within the same project to a HAP
contract anytime during the term without being subject to any additional competitive process.
HAMC will submit to HUD a Letter of Interest or Application to the Moving to Work Demonstration Program when the
opportunity presents itself.
HAMC will continue to look for other ways to offer housing assistance by partnering with outside agencies. HAMC is dedicated
to offering housing outside the traditional subsidized housing in its pursuit to assist our community’s most vulnerable
B.4 Most Recent Fiscal Year Audit
