Arizona Department Of Housing Fund $40 Million For Bridge Housing For Homeless Community In Rural Areas

The Arizona Department of Housing, or ADOH, has announced they will provide $40-million in order to provide nearly five-hundred transitional homes for Arizona residents who are currently homeless in rural areas. The funding money will go towards converting already existing buildings into bridge housing, which is not only a quick process but will also provide more benefits to those in need. ADOH Director Tom Simplot says the benefits to bridge housing are endless. Simplot says, “Having bridge housing in rural communities also allows those experiencing homelessness to stay in their communities instead of traveling sometimes far distances to receive needed services.” ADOH is currently reviewing funding availability in Flagstaff, Cottonwood, and Page and is hoping to find additional rural opportunities.
