The Community Housing Land Trust of Rhode Island (CHLT) is a non-profit affiliated with the Housing Network of Rhode Island with a mission to expand and maintain the supply of long-term affordable housing available for generations of Rhode Islanders. CHLT partners with developers and municipalities throughout the state to develop affordable homes, utilizing various forms of public subsidy. Post construction, CHLT works with homeowners, tenants, rental property owners and property managers to support and maintain ongoing compliance for the duration of the deed-restricted period. There are two legal mechanisms that can be used to preserve affordability, the first being a ground lease and the second being a deed restriction.
