There is increasing demand for community land trusts and the Florida CLT Institute is working with emerging CLTs throughout the state.  Participants can further this movement in a number of ways, including sharing how to effectively sell the story of CLT success to garner increased support and expanded reach of CLTs throughout the state on the mission to produce permanently affordable housing.  At the Symposium, will hear from leaders of established community land trusts who will share their experiences of partnering with local government with positive results.  Participants will then hear from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae about their respective plans to spur greater CLT lending as part of their Duty to Serve, and lender representatives will share why they make CLT loans (and want to make more).   Finally, participants will brainstorm about “what’s next” for CLTs in Florida. Building strong relationships with local government and engaging the lending community will create the scale needed for the growth and long-term sustainability of CLTs.
