Housing Programs

Placer County offers several programs to help residents of all incomes find and retain housing. These range from rental assistance to home buying assistance to housing reserved for local workers.

Hopkins Village

Hopkins Village, a new for-sale housing development located in Martis Valley, will sell to the Tahoe-Truckee workforce. Forty units (20 half-plexes), each containing 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a garage, will be constructed and sold entirely to local workers with an initial sale price of $550,000. Buyers must demonstrate a total household income of 180% of area median income or less and work full-time at an employment site located within the Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District boundary.

Workforce Housing Preservation Program

The Workforce Housing Preservation Program is designed to secure our existing housing inventory for the local workforce. Buyers and developers are eligible for payment in exchange for deed restricting homes so they can only be occupied by local workers. The funding can help homebuyers with down payments or complete renovations. Click here to learn more.
