Apply for Enterprise New York’s Community Land Trust Grants
We are excited to announce a Request for Applications (RFA) for the second round of funding for the Community Land Trusts Capacity Building Initiative, a collaboration between Enterprise and the New York State Office of Attorney General.
Through this RFA, Enterprise is funding the community revitalization and preservation efforts of municipalities and counties in New York State that wish to support (a) parties who are interested in and qualified to form a Community Land Trust (CLT) or (b) existing CLTs. Enterprise will provide grants to up to eight (8) municipalities and counties interested in allocating funding to emerging or existing CLTs through a combination of grants and flexible loans.
Each municipality or county is welcome to apply on behalf of multiple CLTs. Enterprise’s maximum total allocation will be up to $8 million. Grants are expected to be provided for operating and start-up support as well as for capital costs. The purpose of this program is to demonstrate best practices for a range of CLT models, with the ultimate goal that successful outcomes will encourage future public or private support for CLTs.
Responses to the application are due by 5 p.m. EST on April 19, 2019. Enterprise will host a pre-application conference call to answer questions about the initiative on March 12, 2019. Information on submission requirements and the conference call is in the Request for Applications.
Please reach out to Jenny Yang at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about this opportunity.
