Our Communities

While most community land trusts are concentrated in a single neighborhood, Elevation CLT has the flexibility to serve any community in Colorado where families are at risk of displacement.

Who We Serve

Given Colorado’s urgent housing crisis, Elevation CLT will prioritize keeping current residents in their neighborhoods, and it will help put homeownership in reach for low-income families that otherwise could not afford to purchase homes. By focusing on family-friendly housing types such as single-family homes and townhomes, Elevation CLT will help parents secure stable, safe housing, helping their families thrive today and tomorrow.
