A National Study of Community Land Trusts

Yesim Sungu-Eryilmaz and Rosalind Greenstein

July 2007, English

This report presents the results of a survey carried out in 2006 of the 186 Community Land Trusts (CLTs) known to exist at this time. CLTs are used in the U.S. mainly to provide owner-occupied housing for low income households. Specifically, the report presents the results on the background, current activities, and practices of CLTs in the US. The primary purpose of the survey was to obtain baseline information from organizations using the CLT model since there is no pre-existing body of systematic empirical information about the work of CLTs.
