applying for an AZHF grant

The Arizona Housing Fund provides funding for permanent supportive housing projects that serve the most vulnerable individuals and families earning up to 30% AMI (Area Median Income). Funding is distributed on a first come, first served basis for mission-aligned projects.


1. Organizations must be a non-profit affordable housing developer, owner or operator.

2. Have at least five years of experience managing and operating sustainable supportive housing.

3. Have received in the previous 24 months, grant funding or loan funding from one of the following entities: LISC, the ACF Affordable Housing Pre-Development Fund, the Home Matters to Arizona Fund, Arizona Department of Housing or an Arizona county, municipality or IDA.

4. Be in good standing with that grantee and/or lender and current on loan payments, if applicable.



Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Phoenix, a partner of the Arizona Housing Fund (AZHF), will collect and process grant applications.


The AZHF Advisory Committee will then review and approve grant funding.


Nonprofits who have already been pre-qualified by LISC, based on their history of developing supportive housing and managing grant funds can apply for funding with a simplified application.



Those who have not yet been pre-qualified by LISC, can complete the RFQ (Request For Qualification) application. Once approved, they can fill out an AZHF grant application when the need for funding arises.
