About Us

The Bay Area Community Land Trust (BACLT) is a democratic organization advancing housing as a human right by creating permanently affordable, resident-controlled housing cooperatives in the East Bay. BACLT preserves multifamily housing where residents are at risk of displacement by permanently removing rental units from the speculative market and supporting those residents in creating cooperatives. BACLT also revives vacant buildings that are under-utilized, offers interactive training on cooperative property management and democratic governance, and partners with tenant rights, faith, and community organizations in intersectional housing justice efforts. BACLT is democratically governed by its predominantly low-income residents and members. BACLT has eight cooperative projects in Oakland and Berkeley, with several more projects currently underway.
