T.R.U.S.T South LA is a Community Land Trust established in November 2005 as a democratic and permanent steward of land, to challenge the role that speculators, absentee owners and corporations have played in deciding the neighborhoods’ future. With grant and loan funds raised from public and private sources, the Land Trust acquires land to be held in perpetuity by the community-controlled Land Trust. The land will be leased for the development of affordable family housing and other community-serving uses. Permanent control over the assets of the Land Trust is ensured by its legal structure as a membership organization, with Regular Members restricted to low-income people who live or work in the land trust area.
