ACTIVE NYC CLT WORK:
NYC Community Land Initiative is an alliance of social justice and affordable housing organizations and academics committed to winning housing for all New Yorkers.
Our alliance—initiated by members of Picture the Homeless—includes grassroots, community- and faith-based, and city-wide organizations, and labor groups who seeCommunity Land Trusts (CLTs) as a promising tool in the fight to address the root causes of homelessness and displacement.
We are laying groundwork for CLTs and other non-speculative housing models that promote development of housing and neighborhoods for and with community members not served by the private market.
