CITY CLT PARTNERSHIPS. SEE HOW THE
CLT IS THE BEST METHOD OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.
With the cost of living rising, and the wages of many working families remaining stagnant, it is important to create and preserve permanent affordable housing opportunities; this is what the ECLT is all about.
In suburban areas the ECLT’s OWN program creates homeownership opportunities that make it possible for low- to moderate-income families to live in communities they may work in.
In urban areas, the ECLT’s OWN program locks in the affordability of homes for longtime residents to remain even after the community has been redeveloped and housing prices have increased.
The ECLT’s OWN serves clients whose income ranges between 50-120% of the Area Median Income. The program only acquires homes within Essex County however anyone from any county is welcome to participate and apply to buy a home.
