Durham Community Land Trustees

Founded in 1987 by a local group of neighborhood residents in response to rising housing cost, absentee landlords and housing disrepair in their neighborhood, Durham Community Land Trustees (DCLT) is focused on a mission of creating permanently affordable housing and promoting community revitalization.  DCLT develops housing for a wide range of low to moderate income families.  Their current portfolio of over 200 units includes both homeownership and rental housing for special populations, seniors, and low-income families.

The land trust model of housing development ensures housing is permanently affordable and provides a barrier to the gentrification occurring in Durham downtown surrounding neighborhoods.  In addition, DCLT’s homeowner stewardship program provides a safety net for low to moderate income buyers.

Durham Community Land Trustees is a member of the NC Housing Coalition because recognize the importance of strong advocacy for the existence and condition of affordable housing throughout the state of NC.  In addition, the state-wide analysis and statistical data they generate has been extremely valuable to us.
