COMMUNITY LAND TRUST
Central Ohio Community Land Trust (COCLT) is a 501 (c)(3) organization, established in 2018 as a subsidiary of Central Ohio Community Improvement Corporation (COCIC). In partnership with the City of Columbus and Franklin County, the COCLT promotes permanently affordable housing in Franklin County that is fair and inclusive to everyone.
COCLT works with developers to provide residential, new construction homes on currently owned Land Bank lots in areas with high housing costs. COCLT holds the land in perpetuity and provides homes to income eligible buyers, earning up to 120% of HUD area median income, through a 99-year land lease.
