City of Lakes Community Land Trust
The mission of the CLCLT is to provide and foster stewardship of perpetually affordable home ownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income individuals and families throughout Minneapolis.
Our mission is achieved through three major objectives:
- Assisting households that otherwise would never be able to purchase a home responsibly in having the ability to do so;
- Ensuring that, if and when the homeowner(s) decide to sell, the CLCLT is there to keep the home(s) affordable for other income-qualified households; and
- Provide support necessary for CLCLT homeowners be successful in homeownership.
Visit our “Ownership Options” page for more information about our programs.

African American Housing Opportunity Report
In 2014 the CLCLT had the privilege to participate and collaborate with the Minneapolis Urban League, Northside Community Response Team members, and the University of Minnesota Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) on a survey and report concentrated on African American residents in Minneapolis. Over the last year, almost 900 Northside African Americans responded to an in-depth survey focused on better understanding housing opportunities and challenges facing the community. The information provided through this report is critical as we look at programs, policies and investments within the community. Read the full report here.
Bottineau Corridor Housing Needs & Affordability Assessment
In Spring 2014, University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs Graduate Students David Davies, Tony Damiano, Wes Johnson, and Dean Porter completed a comprehensive review of the affordable housing opportunities and challenges facing communities along the proposed Bottineau segment of the Light Rail Transit Blue Line. This team of students provides compelling data that demonstrates the current housing stresses and future transit development pressures. Click on the link below to read the comprehensive report.
