Our membership includes people from diverse backgrounds, and economic levels. Community Land Trust of Schenectady is democratically structured and membership based. Membership means you are joining with this diverse group of people committed to supporting our mission of “fostering healthy communities through the creation, stabilization, and preservation of quality long-term affordable housing.” We work to create a healthy community through permanently affordable housing and we promote ecologically sound land use by offering financial and educational support to the residents of the City of Schenectady.
Although we are partially funded by grants, membership dues go toward essential costs such as salaries, supplies, postage, electricity, outreach and publicity, along with housing rehabilitation and repairs. Membership also allows you to vote for leadership or if interested, serve on our board, or a committee.
