Homekey Program Funding Announcement
The City of Stanton, in partnership with the County of Orange and Jamboree Housing Corporation, has been awarded $6,070,000 in funding under the round two of the State Homekey program to acquire the former 21-unit Riviera Motel in Stanton. The project is the second award for the City of Stanton. The first award for the City of Stanton was for the 132 units created from the Tahiti Motel and Stanton Inn & Suites projects awarded $23.1 million in the first round of the Homekey program for permanent supportive housing.
Located at 11892 Beach Boulevard in Stanton, the Riviera Motel involves the rehabilitation and adaptive re-use of a 21-room motel into Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH). 20 PSH units will target individuals who are at-risk of homelessness, homeless, or chronically homeless earning no more than 30% of the Area Median Income (AMI) including 9 units set aside for individuals meeting the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) eligibility criteria and 10 units for Veterans. One manager’s unit will be provided onsite. The Riviera will share a courtyard and amenities with the Tahiti Apartment Homes, formerly known as the Tahiti Motel.
