Community Land Trusts Are Building Disaster-Resilient Neighborhoods

As disasters like hurricanes, floods and wildfires become more frequent, severe and expensive, residents and policymakers are increasingly turning toward community land trusts (CLTs), which are nonprofits that buy land to stave off displacement and ensure long-term affordability.  Many of these CLTs are also rebuilding with resiliency in mind, such as the Florida Community Land Trust who rebuilt Hurricane-Irma damaged cottages using 12-foot high podiums, low-energy utilities, and structural insulated panels that can withstand 200-mph winds.
