The Chaffee Housing Trust is a local nonprofit created to develop homeownership and rental opportunities affordable for lower income workers and residents who cannot afford market-rate housing.

We build homes using the Community Land Trust model which preserves affordability in perpetuity. Grants and donations invested in each home stay with that home as a community asset. Each home stays affordable for future generations without the need for additional subsidy. Homeowners build limited equity in their home, setting them up to move to a market-rate home when the time comes, or they can pass the home on to their heirs. The next buyer then purchases the home at a price that will be affordable to them. The Chaffee Housing Trust acts as steward to ensure that both the homeowner and the community benefit, now and in the future.
