Project Information

Riverside County is revising its 6th Cycle Housing Element that covers an eight-year period between 2021 and 2029, based on comments and feedback received from the community and the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). The County's Housing Element is a state-required element and is one of nine elements that make up the County’s General Plan.
This revision is necessary to reflect the unincorporated County's changing needs and respond to new state housing laws.  The 2021-2029 (6th Cycle) Housing Element continues to include housing-related goals, policies, and programs to address the existing and projected future housing needs of the unincorporated County, and the update will include additional implementation actions and programs.
The Housing Element is proposed to be updated to incorporate comments from the public and HCD, and includes additional implementation actions and programs to support County of Riverside's existing housing policies and desire for affordable development.
