Mission

Creating affordable homes and strengthening communities through the wise stewardship of land and resources.

Vision

Affordable Homes

Northern Communities Land Trust will create a high quality, permanently affordable stock of homes in Duluth and surrounding communities for purchase by individuals and families with low to moderate incomes so that more people have the opportunity to own a home.

Northern Communities Land Trust will continue to increase the number of affordable homes available in Duluth and surrounding areas because homeownership increases the stability, health, happiness, childhood success and neighborhood involvement of people who own a home.

Northern Communities Land Trust will foster a sense of support and community for Land Trust Homeowners by providing access to information, resources and events which will further their success as homeowners and members of their community.

Strong Communities

Northern Communities Land Trust will help strengthen the communities we serve by providing affordable homeownership opportunities to people who otherwise could not afford it.

Northern Communities Land Trust will provide homeownership opportunities in neighborhoods where there often are no other affordable homes available because we believe people of all income levels should have access to all neighborhoods.

Northern Communities Land Trust will work with community and neighborhood organizations to invest in and revitalize older, core neighborhoods through a combination of new construction and rehabilitation of older homes.  We will strive to prevent displacement of lower income people from these neighborhoods by using the community land trust model to keep our homes permanently affordable.

The Wise Stewardship of Land and Resources

Northern Communities Land Trust will practice and teach the ethic of wise stewardship by ensuring the permanent affordability of our homes through the responsible and sustainable use of public subsidies and land.

Northern Communities Land Trust will continue to increase the environmental sustainability of our homes and will look for additional ways to implement sound and practical sustainable building techniques, striving to create a minimal impact on the environment.

Northern Communities Land Trust will continue our leadership in organizations on the local, state and national level to bring the values of permanently affordable housing, healthy neighborhood revitalization and wise stewardship to communities across the country.
