THE TRUCKEE MEADOWS HOUSING STRATEGY
With the need for affordable housing growing in the Truckee Meadows region, three agencies have teamed up to develop a regional comprehensive housing strategy. Truckee Meadows Healthy Communities (TMHC) and the Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) are collaborating with Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. (Enterprise) to create the Comprehensive Regional Housing Strategy.
This three-phase effort is being supported with funds from various organizations, including Nevada State Housing Division, Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco - AHEAD Grant, Washoe County Health District’s Air Quality Division, National Realtors Association, Heritage Bank of Nevada, National Realtors, Nevada Association of Realtors, Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors, Reno Housing Authority, Private Funders, US Bank, Bank of America and Charles Schwab Bank. Phase 1 is currently underway, and scheduled for completion in June 2018. The first phase includes data gathering and analysis about the current housing market and affordability trends in the Truckee Meadows Region, as well as developing a comprehensive list of current funding sources for affordable housing units. Phases 2 and 3 will include the development of a housing strategy roadmap.
