In a big win for achievable housing in the Truckee-Tahoe region, the State of California has awarded $16.25 million to a 56-unit affordable housing project in the Martis Valley. The grant will also fund regional transportation projects.

The grant is a big step forward for the Meadow View Place affordable housing project, a critically needed workforce housing project that could begin construction as early as next year.

Mountain Housing Council partners, including Placer County, were integral in supporting the successful grant application. That collaborative approach between Mountain Housing Council partners is one of the reasons the organization was formed.
