Inclusionary zoning is a land use tool that requires a small percentage of affordable housing to be produced concurrently with market rate development. Community land trusts are a land use tool for keeping housing affordable in perpetuity.  Using these two tools in tandem benefits the market rate developer, the local government, and the community in need of affordable housing.  This session highlights the work of the Florida Community Land Trust Institute supporting community land trusts throughout Florida, and how CLTs can support mixed-income housing communities by facilitating inclusionary housing programs.  Community Home Trust, serving Chapel Hill North Carolina, will be showcased for the success it has had over the past 17 years providing permanently affordable homeownership built by private sector developers pursuant to an inclusionary zoning ordinance. The local government’s housing policies have enabled Community Home Trust to provide permanently affordable housing in areas rich with opportunity.
