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.

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.

First Time Homebuyer Assistance Program
