Full tribal status enabled the Paskenta Band to embark on its mission to develop a strong, diverse economic base for its membership and surrounding communities. In 2000, the Tribe acquired a 2,000-acre reservation near Corning, California and soon began construction of Rolling Hills Casino. The Casino opened in 2002, providing employment to several hundred local residents. Today, the Casino and Resort employs over 600 employees and has a monthly payroll of over $1,700,000. Most of the employees work full time and enjoy health care benefits and 401k options. The multiplier effect from the payroll alone on the local economy is estimated to be $36 million a year.
Additionally, the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians has diversified its operations to include other enterprises.
