There are over 25 Community Land Trusts (CLTs) across New York State either in operation or at various stages of development. CLTs can play a meaningful role in preserving affordable housing, resisting displacement and gentrification, and building community wealth. 

Few CLTs have staff with expertise navigating affordable housing development and operations. This RFP focuses on identifying a consultant or consultants that can strengthen the knowledge of CLT volunteer members and staff. When equipped with the tools to understand development processes, analysis of joint venture opportunities, and housing operations considerations, CLTs will be better positioned to steward permanently affordable, resident-controlled housing.


Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. (Enterprise) seeks consultants to undertake training and one-on-one technical assistance for the New York State Community Land Trust (CLT) Training Series with the support of Enterprise. This will be a comprehensive 12-month training and technical assistance program that aims to educate CLT volunteers, members, and staff to be well-versed in affordable housing finance and development and to meaningfully participate in housing development and operations.

The selected consultant(s) for each session will be expected to develop the content of the training for participants, often in collaboration with Enterprise staff, as well as host up to one 90-minute office hour within two weeks of the training.
