The Network Receives Ford Funding
The National CLT Network is happy to announce new funding from the Ford Foundation’s Metropolitan Opportunity Unit. The Network was notified on May 13 that it has received $365,000 to support our 2013 work plan including:
- Training and technical assistance to increase the capacity of organizations that develop permanently affordable housing through place-based trainings, webinars, and grants;
- Research that explores the variety of ways that CLTs can preserve community assets and expand the model;
- Policy development and advocacy that 1) minimizes public and private policy barriers that are hindering the development of permanently affordable housing, and 2) results in the inclusion of permanently affordable housing around Transit Oriented Development sites.
Our continued partnership with the Ford Foundation is critical to achieving our mission and we are extremely appreciative of their faith in our work.

HomeKeeper Implementation Partner
The Network is proud to announce that we have recently become a HomeKeeper Implementation Partner of Cornerstone Partnership. This role will allow us to help support national performance reporting and encourage sector-wide adoption of HomeKeeper.
Over 30 organizations from across the country are already using this powerful web-based management solution designed exclusively for community land trusts and affordable homeownership programs. Homekeeper helps program staff track day-to-day program operations, store homebuyer and property information, and measure social impact.
If your CLT or shared equity program hasn't done so already, it's time to sign-up for HomeKeeper! HomeKeeper will be publicly available beginning October 1, 2012, when the next version is released. Organizations will be brought on board in the order that they signed up.
