Welcome to Community Development
The City of Chandler Community Development Section administers funds and programs that promote the improvement of quality of life for low to moderate-income families and assists in the stabilization of Chandler neighborhoods.
Community Development does so by implementing affordable housing programs and by partnering with non-profit and faith-based agencies as well as other City departments to address and meet basic and critical human needs.
