Below, please find several announcements and updates on upcoming events and other important news. Please share this news broadly with your members and email lists. We hope to see you soon!


California just released its Statewide Housing Plan ffor the next ten years, which promises to protect existing and produce additional affordable housing, as well as prevent homelessness. It also acknowledges that, as a state, we need to better streamline and incentivize various types of housing development at all affordability levels.

In recent months, our own jurisdictions have made changes to important housing programs and policies in an effort to provide housing to all of our community members. You can find more information on this below:

Truckee Below Rate Market Program Draft Guidelines Approved

Below market rate housing programs offer rental and for-sale options for the local workforce by creating a separate, deed-restricted inventory of homes that only income-qualified applicants can participate in. On March 8, 2022, Truckee Town Council approved its own Below Market Rate (BMR) Housing Draft Guidelines for the program, which is expected to launch in May.
