Community Land Trusts: A Viable Path for Housing Preservation in New Orleans
What do you know about Community Land Trusts as an instrument of affordable housing finance? Come ask a question, share your knowledge and listen to what is possible as we all continue the work of creating affordable housing in our community!
With recovery in New Orleans continuing at a rapid pace, maintaining a viable stock of affordable housing for our working class residents is becoming harder and harder due to the rising costs of renting and buying a home. Community land trusts have been successfully implemented in other cities across the country as a method to combat this problem. However, CLTs are just getting off the ground in New Orleans and many of real estate professionals are unfamiliar with the specifics of how they will work here. For this event, ULI and its partners will bring together a diverse group of players, including affordable housing developers, city government officials, attorneys, real estate agents and others to provide an open forum for education, advocacy, and best practices based on the successes of those who have used community land trusts in other cities. There will be a moderated panel discussion to provide context and a general education, followed by an open forum which will allow time for questions on specifics. Continental breakfast provided.
