Coconino County

Coconino County is the least affordable county in Arizona for renters. That’s according to an annual report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

In Flagstaff--the county’s main population base—there are about 29,000 homes, but only about 2,100 are set aside for low-income housing.

Combine that with an abnormally high number of renters, and you’ve got a housing shortage for renters, according to Andrew Aurand, Vice President of the National Low Income Housing Coalition. He spoke with KNAU’s Zac Ziegler about the latest report.
