The 2019 Community Land Trust Symposium will feature the launch of the new Community Land Trust Certification Program, created in collaboration with Freddie Mac, as well as updates on policies and programs promoting the expansion of permanent affordability utilizing the CLT model. The Symposium will begin with a discussion on the growth in support of CLTs statewide, including approved add-on language for SHIP Down Payment Assistance strategies and the incorporation of CLTs in recent Florida Housing Finance Corporation requests for applications. The Symposium will next showcase the work of the six community land trust organizations throughout the state that will be the first group to participate in the CLT Certification Program. The Symposium will end with a detailed description of the Certification Program, including who is eligible, how to apply, the process and value of participating, and particularly how it will increase lending for CLTs.
