Landlord Engagement

As part of a comprehensive suite of investments to address affordable housing needs and support people experiencing homelessness, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has approved a $5 million program funded by federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars that expands rental options for people exiting homelessness. Known as ‘Threshold,’ the program features a centralized network of property owners and managers who have committed to providing safe and affordable rental options to help people transition from homelessness to housing. The initiative is the result of a public-private collaboration between Maricopa County’s Human Services Department and HOM, Inc., an Arizona-based organization dedicated to offering housing opportunities for people facing homelessness and housing instability.
