News & Events

New Housing Projects
BACLT is working on two new housing projects that we hope to announce publicly in the next few weeks.
8-unit building in South Berkeley. This building has been boarded up for many years and we expect to sign an agreement with the owner in the next few weeks to renovate and return to the community this critically needed affordable housing.
8 Bedroom House in Oakland. We are negotiating with the owner to purchase this beautiful collective house and work with the residents to make it resident controlled housing.

Past Events

The East Bay Cooperative Housing Coalition held a Co-op Gathering March 11th, 2017. at Berkeley Cohousing. The theme of this Gathering of the Co-ops was: Co-op Chores, and the different approaches taken by various cooperative living communities. Berkeley Cohousing hosted the event in their beautiful common house, and nearly thirty people attending, representing many co-ops, cohousing communities, and collective households. Read more >> .

Donating Your Home
By donating your land or home(s) to Bay Area Community Land Trust, you can leave a legacy of permanently affordable housing for generations to come, and challenge the assumptions of a runaway, speculative real estate market. Read more... Ongoing Projects
BACLT continues to provide training for housing co-ops and other community living groups. We are currently training residents at the Haskell Street Condo Associations on Capital Replacement Budgets.

Hibiscus Commons
Hibiscus Commons is a new BACLT committee that is working to develop a senior co-op in the East Bay. Made up of a group of women who have been working for two years to develop a cohousing co-op, we welcome them as part of BACLT and are working to help them fulfill their dream and to create a model Elder Co-op that goes back to some of our earliest plans.
