Wait, what's a CLT?
A CLT is a nonprofit, community-supporting system of land ownership that guarantees the availability of affordable homes in a neighborhood. The CLT owns the lot – the land – a house sits on and leases it to the homeowner, while the house and all property responsibilities belong to the homeowner. The CLT requires that the house be permanently owner-occupied, by present and future homeowners.

#OaklandMatters - Spread the word
Check out this beautiful video, produced by Emmy-award winner Emmai Alaquiva, to hear the case for the Oakland CLT from people like Julia Erickson, Kevin Acklin, Nadine Masagara-Taylor and Todd Reidbord. They believe that #OaklandMatters.
Oakland is home to world-class amenities and institutions, as well as beautiful residential neighborhoods full of character, history, and architectural details. The Oakland CLT will make homes available for people from all walks of life and incomes. Please share the video and the #OaklandMatters hashtag to help us raise awareness for this campaign.
If you and your neighbors are interested in learning more about the Oakland CLT, OPDC will gladly organize a presentation to discuss it in more detail. Talk to your neighbors, especially those who may be interested in selling. The more participants in each neighborhood, the better the impact of the CLT.
