Housing Division

The goal of the Housing Division is to assist residents with their housing needs. It strives to improve the Town’s overall supply of affordable housing. The Town of Payson offers a Housing Rehabilitation and Emergency Repair Program for income qualified homeowners. The Program is designed to improve the availability of safe, clean and decent affordable housing for income-qualified individuals and families. This program is offered as a deferred loan or small grant to help homeowners with home repairs such as code compliance, health and safety concerns, and energy efficiency.
To qualify:

  • Income for all occupants of the home over the age of 18 is considered. Annual gross income must be at or below 80% of the median household income for Gila County (see chart).
  • Homeowner must own the home and the property on which it sits (the home can have a mortgage as long as it is through an approved lender).
  • Home must be within Town of Payson limits.
  • Home must qualify for rehabilitation (i.e. maximum after rehab value and work to be performed within time and monetary constraints of the program; Housing Program Coordinator can provide more detailed information).
  • Must be a U.S. citizen
  • Homeowner must have lived in the home for at least 12 months.
