[ARCHIVED] Amherst Community Land Trust Provides Affordable Home Ownership Opportunity

Affordable Amherst housing news

The Amherst Community Land Trust will provide one $125,000 subsidy to an income-qualified household to purchase a single-family home in Amherst.

The land trust will own the land under the home and a long-term ground lease will give the homebuyer an exclusive right to use the land. A permanent affordable housing restriction will limit the future resale price of the home.
