Housing remains a significant challenge for both workers and employers in the Tahoe Truckee region. 

The Mountain Housing Council reports that over 50% of surveyed employees lack sufficient income for living costs, and 90% of renters face difficulties securing housing. Concurrently, 79% of employers express concern that current housing conditions detract from the success of their business. 

In response to these challenges, MHC partners are collaborating on initiatives to improve housing affordability and accessibility. They work with nonprofits, governments, businesses, and community members to develop and implement solutions that benefit both employees and employers to tackle the workforce housing shortage.
