Albuquerque uses public/private funds and nonprofit community land trust to create and sustain "The Sawmill" , an affordable housing development for qualifying first time homebuyers and families. We have been there. It is attractive, clean, orderly, well-managed and fills a desperate need for housing for qualifying people. City of Albuquerque provides down payment assistance to some first time homebuyers in the development.

There are many other examples of the use of land trusts around the country to create and sustain affordable housing developments. For example:

There is also a national support network of technical advice on how to do this.

Well worth your time to look into in detail.
