The Community Land Trust administers two funds designed to reduce barriers to joining housing co-operative communities: The Disability Trust and the Domestic Violence Relief Fund (DVRF).
The Domestic Violence Relief Fund (DVRF) assists women who have experienced or are at risk of abuse, threats, or violence, who cannot afford to pay for their shares when they move into a housing co-operative.
The DVRF helps by providing loans with no fee or interest to qualified beneficiaries. In the event that a woman leaves her co-op without repaying her share purchase loan, CHF BC will pardon the loan to the co-op. It is administered by the Community Housing Land Trust Foundation.
People with disabilities face many struggles which affect their quality of life. Affording housing should not be one of them.
The Community Housing Land Trust Foundation (CHLTF) is passionate about making sure people with disabilities have the choice to live in co-op housing. We want to make sure that people with disabilities can afford to pay for housing co-op share purchases.
