The Homes Within Reach program uses the community land trust practice to create and preserve affordable homeownership for families in suburban Hennepin County. The community land trust model removes the cost of the land from the mortgage equation, thereby reducing the mortgage, down payment and closing costs. Over the last 20 years, Homes Within Reach has helped 194 families make the dream of homeownership a reality.
Homes Within Reach serves households at or below 80% of the area median income. For example, a family of four can make up to $78,500. These homeowners provide essential services to the community—they are teachers, municipal workers, retail staff, hospitality workers and more.
