The California Community Land Trust Network is dedicated to strengthening collaboration between Community Land Trusts (CLTs) in California and is helping create community and resident controlled housing that is permanently affordable using the CLT model.  Membership dues help support our shared activities and resources such as our policy committee, the CA CLT Academy and annual gatherings. We have two classes of membership: a voting organizational membership for non-profit Community Land Trusts and a supporting or affiliate membership for individuals and organizations that are closely aligned with our work and values but are not formally organized as CLTs. *Dues paid in the months of Nov and Dec will include membership for the following calendar year. Questions? Please call (415) 967-0497
