Land Trust Development
NCCAA launches the North Carolina Community Action Land Trust
In 2021, the North Carolina Community Action Association (NCCAA) commissioned a study to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its efforts to combat poverty and facilitate self-sufficiency in low-income communities throughout the state.
One of the recommendations from the study was to assess the feasibility and suitability of Community Land Banks and Community Land Trusts to expand the inventory of affordable and workforce housing in Community Action Agency communities with a focus on communities where the influx of wealthier pandemic refugees has greatly reduced the supply of affordable housing.
Building on this recommendation, in June 2022, NCCAA launched the North Carolina Community Action Land Trust (NCCALT).
