Let’s work together to create and preserve permanently affordable housing in Somerville.
Somerville Community Land Trust is an independent, community-based non-profit organization. Its mission is to build community power and stability in Somerville by acquiring residences and land and making them permanently affordable. And you can be a part of it!
Somerville is experiencing an affordable housing crisis. Many people who have lived in Somerville for a long time, or who would like to, can’t afford to. Real estate speculation and development has left many of our neighbors behind.
The Somerville CLT uses a community land trust model to promote neighborhood stability. We provide opportunities to all residents regardless of immigration status and work to develop innovative methods to increase homeownership and address our housing crisis.
