Riverside Housing Development Corporation is a nonprofit dedicated to developing and improving affordable housing in the Inland Empire!
We have a number of wonderful programs to improve housing in our communities:
Development and rehabilitation of single family homes for re-sale to low and moderate income families. We buy homes, usually foreclosures, which we beautifully restore to re-sell at an affordable price to income-qualified families. We work with the new homeowners through other local programs to provide housing education and down-payment assistance.
Rental properties - Beautifully maintained and professionally managed to offer reduced rents for low and moderate income households. Our goal is neighborhood redevelopment, so we look to acquire rental properties that are a problem or an eyesore in the community, and we redesign and restore the properties to be pleasant, attractive, and a positive member of the local community. The great amenities at our various properties have included excellent green features, community areas, and a number of other wonderful features. Some of the green features we have included at a number of our properties are solar panels and solar attic fans, which helps reduce the energy utility bill for residents; we also frequently use radiant heat barriers, water-saving plumbing fixtures, dual-paned windows, energy-efficient lighting and appliances, improved insulation, and drought-tolerant landscaping. All of our properties include gorgeous landscaping and privacy fencing to enhance the appearance and safety of our properties. We also seek to offer ideal communal areas, such as one of our properties which offers an on-site daycare center with playground for residents, a community center, which can be reserved by residents for events, and even a computer lab and free wifithroughout the property for residents.
Housing Rehabilitation Program – We assist income-qualified homeowners with grants and low-interest loans to make necessary repairs to maintain the safety of their homes and the appearance of their neighborhoods.
