Oakland Community Land Trust

The Oakland Community Land Trust (OakCLT) is dedicated to combating community deterioration and expanding housing and economic development opportunities for low-income residents.

Incubated by the Council and fully incorporated as a stand-alone 501(c)(3) in January 2009, the OakCLT promotes neighborhood stability and community involvement through the provision of permanently affordable homeownership and equity-sharing options. OakCLT also supports the development of commercial and retail facilities that serve low-income families. They strive to foster leadership through a responsible and informed board of community members and serve as a voice for low- and moderate-income residents of Oakland.
