TAHOE (Tahoe Affordable Home Ownership Enabling) Program Moving Forward

The TAHOE Program, recently adopted by the SJCLT board, is moving forward. The program will:

  • provide funds for income-qualifying households searching for a primary residence in the Tahoe Basin

  • enable SJCLT to purchase available homes to made available to income-qualified households as their primary residence

  • provide assistance to income-qualified households at risk of losing their homes

The TAHOE Program fund has been established at the El Dorado Community Foundation and seeded with an initial $100,000 contribution by SJCLT. SJCLT staff is developing the program documents and materials and preparing for outreach/education sessions with the real estate community and will be developing a fund raising plan to increase available funds. Once the outreach has been completed an application period will be announced.
