I am a person with disabilities; will I get housing more quickly?
No. Persons who are handicapped, disabled, or elderly receive the maximum amount of points available for the working preference. They are then placed on the list according to date and time of the application, and the number of preference points.
I have a landlord who is willing to rent to me under the Section 8 program; can I get a Voucher immediately?
No. Only those applicants at the top of the waiting list are selected for an eligibility appointment.
My family is being evicted. Can you help me before we become homeless?
Unfortunately, Glendale Community Housing does not provide emergency housing. We can refer you to local agencies that may be able to provide emergency assistance.
I have applied for one program; can I apply for the other program?
Yes. Each program has its own waiting list. However, it is important to understand that applying for one program does not mean you have applied for both. Glendale Community Housing only opens applications for one program at a time.
I have a Glendale mailing address, but my water and sewer bill says Phoenix. Am I considered to be a Glendale resident?
No. It is common to have a mailing address that is different than the city you actually live in. To be considered a Glendale resident, you must live, work, or be hired to work inside Glendale’s city boundaries. The easiest way to determine where you live is to look at the city named on your water bill or your trash cans.
