The Largest National Study on Community Land Trusts and Nonprofits with Shared Equity Homeownership Programs was recently completed.
In partnership with the University of Toronto, Grounded Solutions Network has completed the largest and most comprehensive national census on community land trusts (CLTs) and nonprofits with shared equity homeownership programs (SEH) to date. The report was made possible through the support of Freddie Mac, and which was developed in partnership with and published by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
The census is the culmination of two years of hard work from this dedicated team of researchers, including Runstad Department of Real Estate faculty member Vince Wang, Ph.D.; Jason Spicer, Ph.D.; Emily Thaden, Ph.D.; Celia Wandio, MS; Amanda Bennett; and Sophia Corugedo, MA.
The full report provides illustrative details and insights into the prevalence, practices, and impacts of Community Land Trusts and Shared Equity Homeownership. Perhaps most significantly, researchers identified a marked increase in CLTs or SEHs, recording 314 CLTs or SEH entities across 46 states, representing a nearly 30% increase since 2011.
