This session will explore the benefits of collaborative efforts to address conservation and housing affordability needs in a community. Conservation and affordable housing groups have common interests: to put development where it belongs and protect land from being developed in ways that do not serve natural resource conservation or housing access/affordability goals. Land trusts can serve new community members by collaborating with and learning from affordable housing organizations. In this session, we will share examples from across the country of different ways that conservation and housing groups have worked together. You will learn about: the range of tools that conservation land trusts and affordable housing organizations can use to support community goals; concepts a land trust needs to know to successfully work with affordable housing organizations; what community land trusts and land banks are; and ideas for how your land trust can identify new partners and advance conservation, housing, and community needs.
