rent assistance

There are several ways to request rental assistance in the City of Mesa area:

Mesa Community Action Network

MesaCAN has an appointment line open to Mesa residents seeking rental or mortgage assistance. Please contact MesaCAN on Thursdays between 2:00-3:00pm at (480) 833-9200 to talk to a case manager.

You must reach a live person when you call, who will provide instructions for receiving assistance. Please note many people are calling, so please be patient. Only a limited number of appointments can be taken due to limited funding. The messaging system will notify you when the funding has been exhausted for the month.

City of Mesa

If you were impacted by COVID-19, the City of Mesa has funding for the Emergency Rental and Utility Assistance (ERAP) Program. Please visit their website at www.mesaaz.gov, call: 480-644-5440 or email: ERAPinfo@mesaaz.gov

If you need assistance to submit an online application to the City of Mesa ERAP Program, please visit the MesaCAN office.

The City of Mesa also has a Security and Utility Deposit program. Please visit their website at www.mesaaz.gov/residents/housing
