Riverside County awarded $10.5 million for new housing efforts

Riverside County will receive $10.5 million to provide housing for people experiencing homelessness as part of the state’s new Project Homekey housing initiative.

Building upon an established link between temporary housing and permanent housing, the emergency hotel vouchers provided in Project Roomkey will pave the way for these permanent housing units.

Project Homekey provides funding to purchase and rehabilitate hotels, motels, vacant apartment buildings, and other properties, and convert them into permanent housing for people experiencing homelessness.

The projects that received funding from Project Homekey include a hotel in Palm Springs, a mobile home park in Oasis for farmworker families, and a 52-bed community for LGBTQ youth living with HIV or AIDS in Riverside.

In addition to the three-county projects, the City of Lake Elsinore was awarded $3.1 million to acquire, rehab, and operate a former hotel to provide 14 transitional housing units for up to 28 residents.

“Riverside County is tremendously thankful to receive this grant to fulfill three new efforts to provide permanent housing to individuals and families in our communities,” said Riverside County Board of Supervisors Chair V. Manuel Perez. “I am proud to work with the local leadership of Palm Springs in partnership to advance the efforts for Ivy Palms. This grant will also help expand Mountain View Estates in the eastern Coachella Valley to provide better living conditions to our farmworker and service worker families. We are proud to be among the allocations from this state program, and it will go very far to address homelessness and housing needs.”
