 Housing Trust Funds (HTFs) and Community Land Trusts (CLTs) 

An excellent description what Housing Trust Funds are, and related tools of Community Land Trusts and Land Banks was provided at the 2018 Kansas Housing Conference by Rebecca Buford, Executive Director of the Lawrence Community Housing Trust.  It is recommended that you read that overview as an introduction to accompany the following documents, which illustrate the variety of approaches taken at the local, state, and federal level.
