To help bring more affordable housing to the area, the Phoenix City Council and Housing Department is offering a signing bonus for landlords participating in the Section 8 program.

Landlords will receive a $500 signing bonus for any executed Section 8 Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract. The funding is subsidized by the Federal CARES Act and is specifically for city of Phoenix landlords who make their properties available to residents with vouchers.

The HAP contracts last for one year, meaning residents with housing vouchers will be guaranteed a place to live for at least 12 months. The incentive will support Phoenix’s existing efforts to put homeless voucher holders in rental units and eviction prevention attempts by urging landlords to keep participating in Section 8. The city has set aside $500,000 of Section 8 Federal CARES Act money for this program.
