Founded in October 2013, the Greater Portland Community Land Trust is a new effort in Portland, Maine, led by local volunteers who are working together to organize a powerful, member-driven, community-based group to develop and manage affordable, worker-owned housing in Portland. Our goal is to purchase property in the city and hold the land in shared trust for perpetuity, selling the housing units on 100-year ground leases to eligible, local, low-to-mid income people in our community.
