The Wolf Avenue Collective, a Community Land Trust Housing Cooperative

This Case Study summarizes the establishment of a resident-owned community land trust (CLT) housing cooperative in Missoula, Montana. The property included a group of three buildings containing a total of eight apartments on Wolf Avenue in Missoula’s Northside neighborhood. The property was known to be serving working people in the community and was at risk of being targeted for redevelopment. With a willing landowner, interested building residents, and a significant grant award from the city government, two local non-profits worked together to place the property in the ownership and control of the residents, with legal protections to ensure the apartments will continue to be affordable to future residents in perpetuity.
