Its hard for Section 8 renters to find homes in Moreno Valley these days, they have limits. I don't know the limits, but when we rented a house it was $1,250 for a 2 bedroom, most homes in Moreno Valley are $1,500+ these days, and the tenants cannot pay the difference legally. Temecula and Murrieta are well over $2,000 a month for a single family home in rent on average, the newer apartment hitting $1,600+, so you're not going to see a lot of section 8.

I always thought an ex-burb was a former burb.

You wont see a lot of advertised "section8" but what is going on is, nice, newer "luxury" type of apartments offer units Below Market Rate aka "BMR" units.

When builders submit their plans to to the city for approval, the city requires them to offer so many BMR units for "affordable housing" The rent for those units is based off the persons income or how much they pull in on govt assistance and the limits set by the affordable housing program which is handled by the County of Riverside.

You would be surprised how many new expensive apt complexes these "low income" people are able to get into and live for dirt cheap,

That's completely anecdotal evidence so take it for what it is, but the LA Times recently had an article about a lady who spent two hours each way commuting from the Perris area to her job at the LA County courthouse where she had worked for decades. The lady talked about the struggles of raising her kids while renting in South LA. Over a decade ago she moved way out there to afford a nicer place with better schools for her kids and would keep doing this until she retired in two years.

The crazy thing was that the article talked about her struggles but then ended with her talking about her rent increase for the townhouse she rents way out there!! Why would you go that far and commute every day yet not try to buy something? What was the point of all that if you're still renting? Maybe she was hoping her kids would buy a house and she could live with them for retirement.

If I recall correctly, she used her money to help put her kids through college.

The undertone of these threads should not let anyone mistake this region for what is has become; a thriving - safe - ambitious collection of communities. Social events everyday and a regular influx of fun loving weekenders,

I had to chime in here about the section 8 renters. When nothing is available locally, the state will offer you a remote location to move to. I live in Needles, and there are many from the LA area who have relocated here. When you are desperate for housing, I guess even in the furnace of California, it sure beats homelessness!

My god!!! Needles??? That's as close as you can get to dumping them in Nevada or Arizona without technically doing so!

...Which agencies are involved in sending them out there? San Bernardino County Housing Authority?

The State of California, itself, wouldn't be directly involved in that. It would be a county agency.

The simple answer is that Murrieta/Temecu!a are definitely not ghetto areas They are very safe and clean affluent cities.

Yeah, basically his post is a racist one with a focus on low income black and hispanic folk. We all knew what he meant. Not only do the rich leave the inner cities, the poor do too. Some find a better life and get off section 8.
