Riverside takes its neighborhoods seriously! Community quality of life is affected by many things from the level of resident involvement to the affordability of the homes.
The Housing and Neighborhoods Division of the Development Department is responsible for strengthening neighborhoods through the use of various tools that affect community quality of life, focusing on:
There are 27 neighborhoods in the city, each unique to its geography and residents. Encouraging grass-roots leadership in the neighborhoods builds the community’s capacity to problem-solve at the neighborhood level, increases communications between residents and city hall, produces a neighborhood ready to mobilize in the event of an emergency, urgent need, or to just have fun!
The Housing section provides information on the City’s programs for housing rehabilitation, homeownership assistance, affordable rental housing, and new construction, as well as links to the Fair Housing Council, the County Housing Authority, university student housing, and other resources.
Nearly every city in America has a homeless community and Riverside is proud to take a proactive approach to addressing homelessness by forging partnerships with a wide-range of government agencies, non-profit organizations, social service providers and faith-based institutions to provide shelter and support services.
The primary purpose of the CDBG Program is to assist low and moderate-income persons in developing viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities primarily for low- and moderate-income residents.
