The Housing Choice Voucher Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), provides rental assistance to low-income families by contracting with private owners and subsidizing a portion of the family's monthly rent.

The City will randomly place 4,000 pre-applications on the waiting list by a lottery system. Pre-applicants not selected will be notified and are encouraged to apply at another time. This is the first time the waitlist has been open in the City of Mesa since December 2016.
