Riverside County Officials Seek Veterans for Local Housing Community

Riverside County officials are seeking qualified veterans to fill six openings at a local housing community. The large two- and three-bedroom units are available at Mission Heritage Plaza in Riverside and have been expressly set aside for veterans. This initiative is part of the county’s efforts to support veterans and their families who struggle with affordable housing.

Units Reserved for Veterans

These units were initially held for veterans who were dishonorably discharged. However, Riverside County officials said they had not located anyone that fits that criterion. Instead, the vacancies are now open to any veteran family. The county recognizes the challenges veterans face when transitioning from military to civilian life. One of the most significant struggles is finding affordable housing, which is why these units have been reserved for veterans.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligibility is restricted to veterans between 30 and 45 percent of the area’s median income. This ensures that veterans struggling with financial difficulties have access to affordable housing. The county has taken a proactive approach to ensure that veterans and their families can access decent, affordable housing.

How to Apply?

Three units are available now for veteran families who have joined the Section 8 waitlist through the Housing Authority of Riverside County. This means that these units are available to veterans who have been approved for Section 8 housing assistance. The other three housing units are open for veterans who have received referrals from Riverside County’s Coordinated Entry System.

The system helps match individuals and families experiencing homelessness to the most appropriate housing resources available.


Overall, Riverside County officials are actively taking steps to address the issue of affordable housing for veterans. This initiative at Mission Heritage Plaza in Riverside is just one of many programs the county has implemented to support veterans and their families.

The reserved units provide a crucial lifeline for veterans struggling with housing insecurity and financial difficulties. The eligibility requirements are set to ensure that the most vulnerable veterans have access to affordable housing. The county’s efforts to support veterans are admirable and necessary to ensure that veterans can successfully transition into civilian life.
