“I’m so proud of the way our Human Services staff has delivered for Maricopa County residents during this time of crisis. They’ve not only distributed tens of millions of dollars in rental assistance to keep people in their homes, they’ve done it so efficiently that the federal government says our county deserves more money to prevent evictions. That’s an additional $39 million that would not have been possible without caring, compassionate county staff committed to the people they serve and to processes that make the most of taxpayer dollars,” said Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, District 3.

“This additional funding will allow us to directly deliver relief to families and individuals who are still at risk of eviction as a result of financial hardships brought on by the pandemic,” said Jacqueline Edwards, Director of Maricopa County’s Human Services Department which administers these funds. “We have seen a tremendous need in the community for assistance, so when the opportunity came available to receive a reallocation of funds unused by other agencies, we made sure Maricopa County was in the running for another round of funding.”
