Public Housing

The Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino administers the Housing Voucher rental program for the City of Ontario. Funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Housing Voucher program extends rental subsidies to very low income households by offering the tenant a voucher that pays the difference between the current fair market rent (FMR) established by the Housing Authority and 30 percent of the tenant’s income. A tenant has the option to choose housing that costs more than the FMR, if the tenant pays the extra rent above the payment standard. The Housing Authority also implements the scattered site program, Family Self-Sufficiency program, Section 8 project-based assistance, and HUD-assisted multiple-family housing units. This program serves up to 600 individuals and families in the City of Ontario.
