A Community Land Trust (CLT) is a way for a not-for-profit organization to own the underlying land but allow homes to be sold to and individually owned by low-income/moderate-income homebuyers. Because CLTs retain ownership of the underlying land, CLTs can record deed restrictions regarding the income levels of households that can purchase the homes upon resale to ensure that the housing remains permanently affordable.

During this GWP session, we will learn more about CLTs and how they are working to ensure affordable housing in our region as we meet with the developers of the first CLT in the City of Pittsburgh, the Lawrenceville Corporation. 

Join us as we learn more about how Lawrenceville Corporation’s CLT initiative is a permanently affordable housing, equity-building, and community stabilizing initiative that could serve as a model for emerging neighborhood real estate markets throughout the region and how they envision next steps for CLTs in our region.

We will meet in Lawrenceville at the Ice House for this session and travel from there to tour one of Lawrenceville CLT’s soon-to-be occupied single-family units.  Transportation will be provided to the tour as well as to and from downtown. You will be asked about your transportation preferences in the registration process.  Lunch will be provided.
