Evaluating CLT Performance

CLTs hold themselves to a high standard in trying not only to boost individual families into secure housing, enabling them to reap the many benefits of homeownership, but also to protect the community’s long-term interest in that housing: preserving its affordability for future generations of low-income homebuyers, protecting its safety and soundness, and preventing mortgage foreclosures and absentee ownership.  The materials collected (or referenced) in this section of the CLT RESOURCE CENTER present evidence collected to date evaluating whether CLTs have been effective in reliably delivering   – and equitably balancing – these individual and community benefits.
