Family Housing

Ontario and has a large number of family households, specifically large families with five or more members. The City has a multifaceted program for increasing and maintaining the supply of family housing. The Housing Authority allocates housing choice vouchers to lower income families in Ontario, many of whom are large families. Another key effort is the City’s program to acquire, rehabilitate, and preserve existing affordable housing units that accommodate families and large families. Over the past five years, the City and Agency have preserved the vast majority of publicly subsidized affordable units for families. Finally, the City funds through its Community Development Block Program programs such as child care, afterschool programs, food programs, and other services targeted for lower income households, including large families.
