Since 2010, the Pima County Community Land Trust (PCCLT) has been committed to providing a permanent supply of affordable housing for low- to moderate-income home buyers in the Tucson area. The nonprofit, community-based organization has provided 89 homes to local families.
These properties were foreclosures purchased by the City of Tucson and transferred to the PCCLT for renovations. PCCLT retains title to the land in order to keep mortgage payments low. If the homeowner sells, it must be to another lower-income buyer, and the property remains in the trust.
PCCLT hopes to serve over 175 individuals annually.
