With innovation, integrity, and respect, our team members are working to grow a regenerative economy, restore natural resources, build a resilient climate, elevate rural issues, establish equitable systems, and build strong communities in the Sierra. Our on-the-ground programs and projects are designed to bring proactive change to the Sierra.
How our focus areas guide our work:
A project of Sierra CAMP, the Sierra Nevada Regional Climate Vulnerability Assessment will help Sierra Nevada communities prepare for climate change by examining social, economic, and environmental vulnerabilities specific to our region and by providing climate planning technical assistance.
In partnership with the Martis Fund, Sierra Business Council administers the Martis Fund Homebuyer Assistance Program, which provides down payment assistance to help income-qualified working families in Placer County east of Donner Summit or in the Town of Truckee purchase homes.
