Through an initiative by Senator Betty Little, the State budgeted $1 Million to be used by an “Adirondack Community Housing Trust” to reduce the cost of home purchases for families making up to 120% of area median income. Resale limitations on the property require that future sales of these homes be controlled by ACHT so that they will be passed on to other income-qualified families at affordable prices.

Adirondack Community Housing Trust utilizes the Community Land Trust (CLT) model for perpetually affordable housing. The first CLT’s were developed in the 1970’s. There are now some 200 in the country, and the number is growing rapidly as more communities are concerned with preserving affordable homeownership.

For qualified home buyers, ACHT will finance a portion of the mortgage to purchase an affordable house in exchange for title to the land.
