Public Policy: Funding and Taxing CLTs

The growth in the number and productivity of CLTs over the last ten years can be attributed in large measure to increased support from state and municipal governments, sometimes using their own dollars and powers and sometimes using discretionary funds that pass through their hands from federal programs like HOME, CDBG, and NSP.  The materials collected (or referenced) in this section of the CLT RESOURCE CENTER examine governmental policies and practices that create a favorable – or unfavorable – climate for expanding a CLT’s portfolio of resale-restricted, owner-occupied housing.
