Unlike traditional affordable-housing policies and programs that have specific term limits, community land trusts help to create lasting affordability.
More than 250 community land trusts in the United States provide affordable rental and homeownership opportunities largely for low-and moderate-income families in urban, suburban, and rural communities. If there is anything this pandemic has taught us, it is that the need for affordable housing and housing stability is critical.
Join us as we hear from Grounded Solutions Network and three community land trusts on how they create lasting affordability in their cities with support from their municipality.
This webinar is part of Building Equitable Communities, a series from the National League of Cities and Citi. This series will explore how community land trusts create lasting affordability in housing and how worker cooperatives can build wealth and create quality jobs.
