National Community Land Trust Network

The Foundation originally supported the Community Land Trust and Network with a one year grant and loan package of £1m in 2008 to help establish the CLT Fund (alongside the Tudor Trust, who made a similar contribution, and the Nationwide Foundation, who joined the programme in 2010). The Fund supported pioneer CLTs with grants to enable early stage development, and loans to enable detailed development planning and physical construction.

We are continuing our support of CLTs with two further grants over nine years in total (ending in 2020), towards the core support and development costs of the National CLT Network, and the Technical Assistance Fund element of the CLT Fund.

Learnings and publications from the pilot fund can be found in this report. For further information visit the National Community Land Trust Network website.
