The federal ban on evictions has been extended yet again, bringing relief to tens of millions of renters struggling to catch up. Still, demand is growing for more strategies to stabilize communities and put power in the hands of existing residents.
People who have suffered through the worst of the housing crisis want new ways to achieve long-term housing stability, build wealth, and control their future. They are exploring alternative forms of ownership, like community land trusts and housing cooperatives, which often serve those that have been traditionally shut out.
Join us for a webinar on new models that unlock opportunities for creating permanent affordable homes.
