INCLUSIONARY HOUSING ORDINANCE
[link to the text of ordinance]
In 2022, Jurupa Valley adopted an Inclusionary Housing Ordinance requiring a certain percentage of homes within newly constructed housing projects to be made available for less than market value.
In Jurupa Valley, 20% to 40% of owner-occupied households and 40% to 60% of renter households currently spend at or above 30% of their monthly income on housing. These high costs can lead to overcrowding, economic instability, and homelessness, particularly among vulnerable groups such as seniors, farmworkers, working families, and persons with physical and mental disabilities. The City’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance encourages the production of below-market-rate homes with the goal of housing all community members whether they are working for families or otherwise belong to vulnerable populations.
