BUCKSPORT — Drop in meeting on Affordable Home Ownership 10-11 a.m. Saturday, April 28, at the Jewett School Community Center, Bucksport.
Covenant Community Land Trust (CCLT) is a 501(c)3 organization that was founded in 1978 in response to poverty and growing income inequality in Hancock County, Maine. CCLT holds title to land and houses are sold with a 99 year ground (land) lease and shared equity program which provides the mechanism for maintaining long term affordable home ownership for income eligible families. There are 26 homes that were built on land leased from CCLT located in five Hancock County towns. Most of these homes are owner occupied but a few will be available for re-sale in the coming months and years.
Covenant Community Land Trust will hold a public informational meeting for those who wish to learn more about CCLT and how you can contribute as well as those interested in applying for home ownership on leased land.
