- Recent changes to Placer County’s Workforce Housing Preservation Program have made it easier for the local workforce to secure housing. The program contributes up to 16% of the purchase price of a home (or up to $150,000) to the homebuyer to use as a down payment in exchange for the deed restriction. Truckee will launch their version of this program in October. The Truckee Home Access Program (THAP), will offer incentives to sellers, businesses, and developers in addition to qualified buyers.
- Housing-related code amendments took effect on July 14th in Placer County. Notable changes include allowing smaller lot sizes and tiny homes as well as tiny home communities.
- Lease to Locals program expanded to Placer County on August 1 and has 10+ conversions in the works. Eligible North Lake Tahoe homeowners could earn up to $24,000 by offering their property as a long-term rental to local workers.
MHC presented on supportive housing at the September NLTRA Breakfast Club in partnership with United for Action, Tahoe Truckee Health and Human Services and North Tahoe Truckee Homeless Services. Watch the Recording.
