Arizona Housing Director: How Low-Income Housing Credit Could Combat Housing Crisis
Housing prices in the Valley have skyrocketed recently.
The median home price in Phoenix this summer is a record $400,000. Last summer, it was $100,000 less.

The Show spoke with Arizona Housing Director Tom Simplot to learn more about it, beginning with just how bad the affordable housing situation has gotten here and how much has it shifted in recent years.
