Homestead Community Land Trust will launch a coalition of leaders from low-income communities – the Network for Community Led Housing -- to increase affordable homeownership in areas at risk of displacement from rapid growth in our region. 

Presenter: Kathleen Hosfeld, Executive Director 

Homestead Community Land Trust works to build thriving, inclusive and equitable neighborhoods in King County by creating a growing supply of permanently affordable homes owned by low and moderate income families. We build or rehab homes, make and keep homes affordable permanently, and we support the success of our homeowners. We believe that everyone wins when the people who contribute to our quality of life – teachers, first-responders, health care workers, artists and more -- have the opportunity to own a home, because homeownership creates stability, fosters community resilience and creates economic mobility by allowing owners to build wealth. The community land trust approach to homeownership – in which modest income owners buy their home but lease the land on which the home resides for a small monthly fee – is a sustainable, scalable way to stretch public investments in affordable housing while addressing displacement and the wealth gap. Homestead is a democratic membership organization. Our homeowners are our members and are active in the governance of our organization including holding a third of seats on our Board of Delegates. 56% of those who own Homestead homes are people of color. Founded in 1992 by members of low-income communities, Homestead has 215 homes in trust and has put homeownership within reach of 251 families. We are committed to equitable development and advancing environmental sustainability as we grow the supply of homes in our portfolio.
