About us

There is no one way to create a prosperous Lake Tahoe, so we’re not focused on just one solution.

The Tahoe Prosperity Center is the regional community and economic development non-profit for the Tahoe Basin. We were formed at the recommendation of the 2010 Lake Tahoe Basin Prosperity Plan, the first Basin-wide comprehensive economic development study, published in 2010.

We work regionally with local businesses, jurisdictions, non-profits, and community members to advance identified, data-driven initiatives that better the environment, community, and economy for everyone living and working in Tahoe. To make this beautiful region truly inclusive and prosperous, we are working to establish attainable workforce housing, job and training opportunities, reliable and robust internet, and a safe Basin equipped with fire safety cameras – all driven by locally focused, topical community indicators data. 
 
We do this by leading in our communities, convening stakeholders, coordinating between neighborhoods, jurisdictions, and organizations, and facilitating collaboration so that necessary changes can happen for everyone in Lake Tahoe. To make the Basin a place where anyone can live, work, play, and thrive, we must work together as one lake and one region.
 
We believe that community input, factual data, and best practices should inform all of our work, and we incorporate all of these pillars into our projects. We are tackling big problems that affect the entire region, and we’re honored to work with our partners to better Lake Tahoe’s communities, environment, and economy.
