Great work by another CLT! Lexington Community Land Trust is committed to building permanently affordable, energy efficient, and well-built housing for low income buyers. The Davis Bottom neighborhood has a rich and diverse history that we strive to honor through our work.

Often the greenest new homes are also the most expensive. GreenBuild, a partnership between Penn State and the State College Community Land Trust, is looking to solve that problem with a net zero energy duplex that will be affordable both to purchase and to live in.

For the answer, she adds, look to New York City, where CLTs are having to do a very different kind of work. “At some point, they will wish they had,” Hiller says.

Why is community land trust homeownership an important part of an equitable housing strategy? It puts homeownership within reach of those shut out of the dream of owning their own home by discrimination. http://bit.ly/2zW7paS

Families in CLTs are more likely to enjoy the same positive social outcomes as other homeowners, including better health and education outcomes, more stable employment, and an opportunity to build long-term equity.

This is serious stuff: "affordable housing without a government subsidy is becoming extinct," simultaneously, government subsidies for affordable housing are diminishing.
