Put yourself to the test before a donor does

Posted By Erica Crenshaw, Execute Now!, Thursday, January 30, 2014

"A lot of charities are 'really strapped' and will be 'for the foreseeable future,'" says Elizabeth Keating, a lecturer at Boston College who focuses on nonprofit issues.

Help Find a Viable Path for Housing Preservation in New Orleans

Posted By Julius Kimbrough, Crescent City CLT, Inc., Wednesday, January 29, 2014

What do you know about Community Land Trusts as an instrument of affordable housing finance?

Come ask a question, share your knowledge and listen to what is possible as we all continue the work of creating affordable housing in our community!


TITLE: Community Land Trusts: A Viable Path for Housing Preservation in New Orleans

WHEN: February 12, 2014 8:30 am

WHERE: Dillard University

WHO: Van Temple, Executive Director, Crescent City Community Land Trust; Nancy Stangle, Emierita Director, Athens Land Trust; Beth Sorce, Community & Capacity Building Manager, National CLT Network; John Debreuil, Attorney and Board Member, Northshore Housing Initiative


ABOUT: With recovery in New Orleans continuing at a rapid pace, maintaining a viable stock of affordable housing for our working class residents is becoming harder and harder due to the rising costs of renting and buying a home. Community land trusts have been successfully implemented in other cities across the country as a method to combat this problem. However, CLTs are just getting off the ground in New Orleans and many of real estate professionals are unfamiliar with the specifics of how they will work here.




Thank you to our sponsors:
