As urban living becomes more attractive to the affluent, people who have lived in the same neighborhood for years are being pushed out by teardowns and skyrocketing rents. Community Land Trusts can help preserve affordable options for all. Find out:

  • How land trusts acquire and hold land for the good of the community;

  • How land trusts help low-income families build equity and financial stability; and

  • How to level the playing field against gentrification and speculation.
