  • Apartment Evictions in Arizona have doubled in the past year and continue to rise. The eviction of a low-income family often results in homelessness because the financial drain and loss of credibility often precludes the ability to find another unit. In response, the Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) is developing a new Eviction Prevention Program. ADOH is holding two public hearings to receive input on a proposed Eviction Prevention Program.
