City of Lakes Community Land Trust & Neighborhood Housing Services of Minneapolis
On July 1, 2015 the City of Lakes Community Land Trust and Neighborhood Housing Services of Minneapolis (NHSM) merged after being approved by both the CLCLT membership and the Board of Directors of NHSM and CLCLT. Both organizations share the geography that aligns with the City of Minneapolis as well as a culture committed to the households served through the organizations’ similar missions. The merged entity will retain the name of “City of Lakes Community Land Trust” and its offices will remain at the Glenwood Avenue site. For more information click here.
The mission of the CLCLT is to provide and foster stewardship of perpetually affordable home ownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income families throughout Minneapolis and is achieved through three major objectives, including:
- Assisting households that otherwise would never be able to purchase a home responsibly in having the ability to do so;
- Ensuring that, if and when the homeowner(s) decide to sell, the CLCLT is there to keep the home(s) affordable for other income-qualified households; and
- Provide support necessary for CLCLT homeowners be successful in homeownership.
