Tahoe-Truckee COAD


The Tahoe Truckee COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster) develops and enhances partnerships to create a resilient Tahoe Truckee region that is prepared to respond and recover from disasters. We do this through communication, cooperation, coordination, and collaboration with a variety of stakeholders including non-profit & faith-based organizations, government agencies, and the private sector.

Access & Functional Needs Outreach Program

We recognize that populations who have a disability or limited mobility, speak a language other than English, are under-resourced, and/or have other access & functional needs are disproportionally affected by disasters. In partnership with Sierra Community House, the Tahoe-Truckee Community Foundation, and the Sierra Health Foundation, the Access & Functional Needs Program was established in 2023.

The goals of the Tahoe Truckee COAD Access and Functional Needs Program include:

  1. Inclusion and prioritization of diverse and underrepresented voices and communities in the Tahoe Truckee COAD
  2. Increased cultural competency, equity in access and capacity in the Tahoe Truckee COAD
  3. Increased resiliency and social capital in under-resourced communities in the Tahoe Truckee region
