The Community Co-Ownership Initiative (CCOI) education and training series is starting its fourth year and we’re excited! Workshops in 2022 have focused on the needs of NCLT residents and partners. Some of our offerings have included:
CLT Homeowners and Estate Planning – Do you own a Community Land Trust home in California? Join us to discuss the impact of the ground lease on leaving property to heirs, as well as other end of life decisions – with goal of keeping you and your loved ones out of court and out of conflict. Similar workshop for CLT coop owners and renters coming soon!
Thursday, March 31, 7-8:30pm
Thu, Aug. 18 | 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM PDT | BNSN Resource Center
Mold – Causes, Sources and what to do – Mold is a common reality, especially in the Bay Area. The key is to identify the source of moisture and address the source to reduce it as much as possible. There are structural building solutions and there are personal solutions – this workshop will focus on what you can do personally to mitigate mold in your home. All NCLT residents are welcome! Our experts and presenters from Alameda County Healthy Homes will be Soni Johnson and David Lee Crosby.
