Your donation will provide down payment assistance for households who purchase homes through the African American Community Land Trust (AACLT). The AACLT is an initiative focused on significantly decreasing the historic racial disparities in the homeownership rate while increasing access to perpetually affordable homeownership in Minneapolis. The AACLT is supported by the CLCLT, the Urban League Twin Cities, the Stairstep Foundation, and OnTheGroundStrategies. This donation will be dispersed through the City of Lakes Community Land Trust for households purchasing homes through the AACLT program. 

If you:

  • Discovered your home had a racial covenant and contacted Just Deeds, Minneapolis to have it discharged, it's time to get your lawn sign! Order it below and choose your donation amount of either $25, $50, or $150, or write in your own amount. If you want to support affordable home ownership options into the future, we encourage you to think about becoming a monthly donor to the CLCLT. 

  • Do not have a racial covenant, but want to support this project and get a print, order it below and choose your donation amount of either $25, $50, or $150, or write in your own amount.   

  • Want to donate and don't need anything in return, just indicate that on the order form below and choose your donation amount.
