Community Land Trusts (CLTs)

Center for Housing Policy--Shared Equity

Working with Rick Jacobus of Burlington Associates and with financial support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Center for Housing Policy has developed a shared equity website that includes an online shared equity tutorial, research papers, and an interactive spreadsheet that allows a user to enter data regarding one's own community to determine how different shared equity strategies will work based on area home prices and other factors.

 

Community Land Trust Resource Center

This website, maintained by Burlington Associates, a community development consulting firm, provides a wide range of community land trust resources, including information on how to start up a land trust, how to finance a community land trust, and public policy issues.

New Economics Institute

The Community Land Trust section of The New Economic Institute's website provides a useful overview of the history and theory behind the land trust model.  The site also provides links to articles, events, supportive organizations, a directory, online handbook, and three land trust projects.

Policy Link, "Community Land Trusts"

This site provides perhaps the most thorough overview of the community land trust movement, including information about available resources and three case studies.

Troy Gardens Case Study

With the support of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, the National Community Land Trust Academy has set up this website as its first case study. A project of the Madison Area Community Land Trust, Troy Gardens provides a useful illustration of what it takes to development a community land trust project because: (1) it includes a wide variety of land uses, (2) it provides a model of conservation-based affordable housing development, and (3) almost every conceivable issue was encountered during the development process.
