Champlain Housing Trust Wins Prestigious Global Award
The Champlain Housing Trust, formerly the Burlington Community Land Trust, was recently chosen to receive a World Habitat Award. The award is in recognition of Champlain Housing Trust’s pioneering role over the last quarter-century in creating perpetually affordable housing using a land trust model.
This is a great honor for community land trusts all over Vermont that have adopted this model, making Vermont a national leader in innovative approaches to ensuring that everyone can afford a decent place to live. Only two awards are given globally each year, one in the northern and one in the southern hemisphere.
