Supporting Permanently Affordable Housing

In this video, the Northern California Land Trust, Oakland Community Land Trust, and the Law Center cover the legal nuts and bolts of permanently affordable/shared equity housing, including different legal models and funding mechanisms to remove housing from the speculative market. The session will help inform housing-focused attorneys’ knowledge of affordable housing finance generally, different models of shared equity housing, and the emerging needs of community land trusts and shared equity models like the permanent real estate cooperative.

If you work with tenants, support the movement for community control of land and housing, or just want to learn more about financial and legal models, please watch this video!
