Introducing the Rooted Renters Program

Locking in workforce rental units at below market prices for three years by providing financial incentives to property owners.

 

What is Rooted Renters? 

Launching July 15, 2024, Rooted Renters provides financial incentives to Truckee property owners who offer below market rate housing to local workforce members for three years. The goal of the Program is to create stable, long-term rental housing at an affordable rate for the local workforce across three years, provide landlords offering below market rent with equitable participation in the Town’s workforce housing incentive programs, and expand the Town’s suite of housing programs through a multi-year rental solution. The Town is offering payments based on unit size disbursed in increasing percentages over the course of a three year period to incentivize owners to continue renting their property for a longer period.

Property owners will be reached out to on a first come first served basis in the order that their Preliminary Application Form is submitted in.
