Community Development Assistance
NCLT helps communities organize and set up additional land trusts. A recent example of this effort is NCLT’s leadership role in the creation of a state-wide California community land trust (CLT) network. NCLT is also active at the national level through our active participation within the national CLT network.
The majority of the NCLT’s projects are done as partnerships with other local community based organizations and tenant groups. Many of our projects have worked with a group of tenants and owners to find win-win ownership models and support for residents to purchase homes who would otherwise be able. NCLT takes a proactive approach to including neighborhood concerns in its developments. As developers, we have concentrated on the rehabilitation of run down housing and construction of infill developments in styles that complement the housing surrounding it. Surveys show that these are the types of affordable housing projects that neighborhood residents want the most.
