Home Futures Institute: Introduction to Community Land Trusts for Residential Real Estate Pros and Appraisers

Community land trusts, or CLTs, meet urgent community needs by placing homeownership within reach of those shut out by discrimination or high-cost markets, providing affordable housing opportunities and preventing displacement due to gentrification. CLTs can also be used to preserve commercial and community spaces, as well as access to open space and farmland. Black farmers and civil rights leaders developed the model over 50 years ago, and today urban and rural communities alike are using the model to ensure community control of land.

This introductory webinar is for real estate professionals, agents, appraisers, mortgage lenders and attorneys interested in learning more about the CLT model and how they can support their creation, growth and sustainability. Hear from Washington State CLT experts who have been producing and preserving housing for more than 30 years.

This webinar is offered as part of the Home Futures Institute, presented by Grounded Solutions Network and the Northwest Community Land Trust Coalition, and made possible by the State of Washington Department of Commerce.
