Re: “Housing group hits fundraiser goal

Thanks for this update. Contributions are continuing to arrive, even though we reached our stated goal, because people are recognizing the importance of establishing a community land trust to give control over the real estate to the people who live in those communities. Contributions can still be made at https://www.youcaring.com/elizabethmcgriff….

Re: “Housing trust gears up

Thank you for sharing the great work by Liz McGriff, Take Back the Land, and City Roots Community Land Trust to bring new and viable options for permanently affordable housing to Rochester. There are over 250 community land trusts across the country The largest is Champlain Housing Trust in Burlington, VT, with 565 owner- occupied homes, and 2200 apartments in its portfolio. It was launched in 1984 with a $200,000 seed grant from the administration of then Burlington Mayor, Bernie Sanders. In 2008, Champlain CLT won the prestigious United Nations World Habitat Award, recognizing its innovative, sustainable programs. It's time for the city of Rochester to get on the bandwagon!
