Housing resources in Placer County the focus of free webinar series coming in May
Published April 25, 2022
May is Affordable Housing Month and Placer County is offering free webinars throughout the month to highlight everything residents need to know about housing assistance resources in our region.
As housing challenges have increased in recent years, Placer has adopted new policies to encourage the development of more housing affordable to those in all income ranges and implemented new programs to increase access to housing in unincorporated Placer County.
