Community Land Trusts

While this entire website is dedicated to community land trusts, what you will find on this page is specific, technical information and academic research related to the model—what makes a CLT a CLT—as well as some resources around the history of the CLT movement in the United States. For additional general information about CLTs, we encourage you to look at the “Exploration” page on the topical index.
