One Crisis Away: Rethinking Housing Stability for Arizonans on the Margin

Description

COVID-19 has disrupted almost every facet of American life, but the pandemic’s economic impact has been especially challenging for some of Arizona’s renters. Prior to COVID-19, approximately one in seven Arizonans lived in poverty, which is defined as earning less

COVID-19 has disrupted almost every facet of American life, but the pandemic’s economic impact has been especially challenging for some of Arizona’s renters. Prior to COVID-19, approximately one in seven Arizonans lived in poverty, which is defined as earning less than $13,000 a year for a single adult and less than $22,000 a year for a three-person family. More Arizonans are one crisis away from severe financial hardship and potential eviction than just Arizonans living in poverty. Preventing an eviction “avalanche” after Arizona’s eviction moratorium ends is critical to the state’s finances because the costs, shouldered in part by taxpayers, associated with eviction and homelessness can be staggering. While financial support from unemployment insurance programs, the federal CARES Act, and Arizona’s eviction prevention fund are helping some Arizonans navigate the initial economic fallout from COVID-19, there are still thousands of Arizonans on the brink who have applied for rental assistance and not received support.

Arizona voters will be asked to pass judgment on five measures on the ballot in the November 2018 general election. Four propositions call for amendments to the Arizona Constitution. Two propositions were placed on the ballot by the Legislature, two others through the initiative process and the remaining one via a signature-gathering campaign challenging legislation passed by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor. As in past years, ASU Morrison Institute for Public Policy examined Arizona’s propositions to offer voters independent and nonpartisan assessments based on relevant documents and views expressed by subject-matter specialists and those who support and oppose particular measures. “Understanding Arizona’s Propositions” will provide information on each ballot proposal, how each came about, what it would do if passed, and its likely impact.
