Comparing/Combining the CLT With Other Models of Tenure

Community land trusts are often confused with municipal land banks or with other models of resale-restricted, owner-occupied housing (which sometimes goes by the generic name of “shared equity homeownership”).   More constructively, community land trusts can be productively combined with other models of tenure and operated in partnership with them.   The materials collected (or referenced) in this section of the CLT RESOURCE CENTER provide a series of comparisons between the CLT and land banks, co-ops, condominiums, manufactured housing communities that are resident-owned, and the heavily subsidized housing being developed by Habitat for Humanity.
