What is ACLT?
Watch these video featuring ACLT homeowners & tenants sharing their stories about how affordable housing has improved their lives!
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.
ACLT welcomes new Program Director
ACLT is excited to announce that Lisa Crompton has joined our team. Lisa, formerly of Historic Albany Foundation, will be responsible for helping ACLT successfully complete its acquisition and rehab programs. Welcome Lisa!
Lisa will help us complete the renovation of more than 10 affordable rental units, with financing from New York State HCR and Enterprise Community Partners. ACLT will focus its work in the West Hill neighborhood, and plans to acquire and rehab several vacant Albany County Land Bank owned properties.
ACLT Celebrates 30 years!
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.
