The Housing Authority of the County of Riverside is utilizing www.GOsection8.com for available unit listings. It is recommended that you register and list your units on the GOsection8 website.
Advertising and locating property has never been easier!
The Housing Authority has partnered with www.Gosection8.com, which provides an enhanced program to list rental properties on line. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher tenants seeking apartment units, duplexes, single-family homes or townhomes in the private market.
This is a COURTESY listing only. Landlords and tenants are not pre-approved or pre-screened by the Housing Authority. Tenants and landlords are responsible for doing their own background screening and for following their own approval process. It is expected that each party will sign at least a one year Lease Agreement. In addition, the landlord will sign a one year Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Contract with the Housing Authority.

In order for a lease and tenancy to be approved under the voucher program, the rent must be affordable for the family (tenant's share of rent and utility allowance can be no more than 40 percent of the family's monthly income) as well as reasonable in comparison to the rental market. Many rents far exceed the payment standard and are therefore not viable for the voucher program.
Landlords are prohibited by the voucher regulations from requesting or accepting any payments in excess of the Housing Authority approved rental payments. Voucher payment standards are listed here.
