Many of Tempe’s low-income apartments charge rent based on the tenant’s income. In some cases, the Department of Housing and Urban Development supplements the rent price directly to the landlord. In general, these apartments are clean, well-appointed and located in convenient neighborhoods. In fact, these apartment communities must meet strict federal standards such as adequate air circulation and a lack of serious defects in the apartment. These apartments must also provide screens on all exterior doors and windows, be free of harmful air pollutants and provide alternative safety exits. These and the many other federal standards ensure that tenants are moving into safe, functional apartments.

In Tempe, you can find low-income apartments ranging in size from studio to four-bedroom residences. Most, however, are one- and two-bedroom units ranging in price from $350 to $800 a month with subsidies.

These available apartments are located in prime areas of Tempe, close to sites like ASU, downtown and Arizona Mills. Most have a wide variety of features, including covered parking, on-site maintenance, storage and laundry facilities. Some even offer swimming pools and fitness centers.

Utilities are not necessarily included in the monthly rent fee. If you are leasing one of these apartments, verify whether utilities are included. If utilities are not covered, or if they are only partially included, find out which utilities you’ll be responsible for. Several programs are available to assist with paying for utilities if their cost isn’t included in the rent.
