WEBINAR- Determining if a CLT is Right for Your Community
April 21, 2020 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Most local governments have a basic understanding of how community land trusts work and how they increase homeownership opportunities for lower income households while preserving long-term affordability. This webinar will answer the question: Is a CLT right for my community, and if so, where should we begin? The presenters will discuss the impact local housing market conditions have on designing a CLT program and how CLTs can be used as a tool to revitalize neighborhoods, build racially-integrated communities, and prevent displacement in gentrifying communities. The training will include factors to considers when starting a CLT or a ground lease program, options for implementing a CLT program and the best way to structure the program, a review of key legal documents including the model ground lease and its provisions, and an overview of the core best practices for successful CLTs.
