We are the Northshore's First Community Land Trust
The Northshore Housing Initiative is our area’s first Community Land Trust (CLT), a non-profit community organization that makes the dream of homeownership an affordable reality for qualifying individuals and families.
Many essential service workers, teachers, medical workers and first responders are forced by rising St. Tammany land prices to live outside the Parish.
The community land trust model allows the moderate-income homebuyer to purchase a house while the community land trust invests in ownership of the land. The land is leased to the homebuyer by the trust with a limited appreciation formula that preserves affordability for the next buyer.
Through a generous grant from the State of Louisiana and St. Tammany Parish Government we help moderate-income homebuyers live and work in St. Tammany Parish.
