The CLT Coordinator will report to the CCLT Board
Charm City Land Trusts, Inc. (CCLT) is Baltimore’s longest-tenured community land trust (CLT). Established in 2000, CCLT has undertaken several land and housing justice efforts over the course of its 20-year history, including the stewarding of the Amazing Port Street Commons, a community garden located behind Amazing Grace Lutheran Church, and the development of affordable housing, including the recent completion of a CLT home in the heart of McElderry Park. CCLT is committed to community-driven and equitable development that centers democratic participation, racial equity, and collective decision-making in all facets of urban development. With the completion of CCLT’s first home, the organization is looking to expand its capacity in order to develop and execute multi-unit development and maintain its other assets, particularly the Amazing Port Street Commons. As such, we seek to hire a part-time CLT Coordinator to oversee community organizing, increase community membership in and governance of CCLT, oversee nonprofit administration, and assist with housing development.
