CNHED Research and Development VISTA
The Douglass Community Land Trust (Douglass CLT) is a racial and economic equity organization operating in the Douglass Commonwealth/ District of Columbia that relies on democratic governance and legal control of land to preserve community resources in perpetuity. The key results for the Douglass CLT are to preserve long-term affordability of residential (and commercial) spaces)- creating community-held assets, and to build assets for low-income individuals and families who are primarily African-American and who have contributed to making DC the prosperous community it has become, yet are at risk of displacement. Within 10 years, the Douglass CLT aims to secure the permanent affordability of 750 homes, providing excellent stewardship of the properties, and ensuing that the residents not only benefit from stable affordable housing (rental and home-ownership), but are part of the decision-making about what happens in their own communities. The Research & Development VISTA will, by researching best practices and accurate data collection, work to ensure that residents of the District of Columbia are able to strengthen the existing community and resist displacement that follows patterns of divestment and subsequent redevelopment.
