The Housing Authority of Maricopa County (HAMC) owns and manages 500 units in 15 communities throughout Maricopa County. These properties are generally located in the smaller cities and unincorporated areas of the County. Most of the larger cities in the Metropolitan Phoenix area have their own Housing Agencies that serve the populations of each city. For a map showing the location of properties managed by HAMC click here. Because of the size of the Phoenix Metropolitan area, HAMC has divided its operation into four separate areas, each with its own waiting list and area office Our Property Management department is program funded by The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for low-income residents. Annual gross income must be within limits as established by HUD, and eligible families pay a monthly rent equal to the greater of 30% of their monthly adjusted income or 10% of unadjusted monthly income. Applicants may qualify as a family and/or as an eligible single person.
Notice: Effective January 30th, the waiting lists will be Open.
