Community Land Trust Directory

A comprehensive list of CLTs in North America



The following community land trusts are regionally-based, open-membership, non-profit organizations that acquire land, hold it in trust, and then lease it for housing and other productive purposes such as farming, community appropriate manufacturing, locally-owned retail and office space. Lessees own the buildings and other improvements on the land, but the land itself is held by the CLT. Resale restrictions on property ensure buildings remain permanently affordable. CLTs govern on behalf of both the leaseholders and the broader regional community through an elected, tripartite board of trustees.

Regional coalition networks organized to increase CLT capacity are highlighted in purple. An additional page with expanded information on CLT coalitions is available here.  A European CLT directory is also available and can be found here
