The Albany Community Land Trust (ACLT) is a community-based non-profit organization committed to rebuilding neighborhood housing stock and creating high quality permanently affordable housing in the city of Albany.
Owning Land for the Community
ACLT holds land in a trust for the use of community residents who would otherwise be priced out by the community real estate market. The homeowner holds the title to the renovated building. We provide quality rental and homeownership opportunities.
ACLT is part of the AHP Homeownership Center and a member of the Albany Community Development Alliance.

Thanks to the leadership of our engaged board of directors, ACLT has become a successful affordable housing developer and property manager. ACLT specializes in acquiring and rehabilitating vacant properties for sale to first time homebuyers or to retain as permanently affordable rental housing.
Program highlights from 2017:
To develop affordable housing opportunities for low-income people, preserve housing affordability for future generations, combat community deterioration by promoting economic opportunities in low-income neighborhoods, and educate the general public about ongoing and innovative methods of community development.
