City Roots Community Land Trust

City Roots Community Land Trust (CRCLT) was formed in 2016 out of a grassroots effort to prevent displacement and build an alternative model of land ownership in Rochester, NY. The idea behind creating our Community Land Trust (CLT) was that if our community owns the land we all depend on, we can prevent our neighbors from being displaced from their homes and build community wealth that we can all benefit for generations. As a Community Land Trust, we have a board of directors that is elected by our members and residents, and we acquire land to be used for housing and community space that will be permanently affordable. Our current portfolio of 17 properties includes single-family homes, rental housing, community gardens, and the Peace Village tent encampment.

We focus on: Community Benefit and Economic Development, The Environment
