Community Land Trust administers two funds that reduce financial barriers to joining housing co-operatives: The Disability Trust and the Domestic Violence Relief Fund (DVRF).

As part of joining a housing co-op, a new member must buy shares. These two programs help certain people who are unable to pay for their shares immediately.

  • The Disability Trust helps people with disabilities who are unable to pay for their shares immediately, by providing a loan with no fee or interest. Download the Disability Trust information flyer or, for more information, email us.
  • The Domestic Violence Relief Fund (DVRF) helps women who have experienced, or are at risk of, abuse, threats or violence. Like the Disability Trust, the DVRF provides loans with no fee or interest to qualified beneficiaries. Download a copy of the DVRF flyer.  If you know a woman who might be eligible for this fund and would like information about housing co-ops please get in touch.

For more information on either program, please email us at:
