Arizona leaders hit the road to address the state's affordable housing problem
The Arizona Legislature’s committee for housing supply is traveling the state next month to hear from communities about what they need to address housing shortages.
The committee will be in Flagstaff, then Tucson, Sierra Vista and Sedona to take information from constituents.
The committee was formed to put together plans of how to address housing shortages in the state. The National Low Income Housing Coalition estimates Arizona has about 200,000 extremely low-income renter households, and only 26 affordable places to rent for every 100 of those households.
The committee expects to have a final report of its findings by the end of the year.
