NYCCLI is leading the charge to bring land and housing into community ownership. Join us!


The Community Land Act is a set of bills to give community land trusts (CLTs) and other nonprofits tools to acquire, develop and preserve deeply and permanently affordable housing, community and commercial spaces, and other critical needs. Together, these measures address root causes of our city’s affordability crisis, combat displacement, and build collective wealth in Black and brown communities.
