Champlain Housing Trust
|Area served||Northwest Vermont|
The Burlington Community Land Trust and Lake Champlain Housing Development Corporation were each founded by the City of Burlington, Vermont in 1984 to provide affordable, safe housing to families and individuals with low to moderate incomes. As geographic territory, services, and funding sources increasingly overlapped, the two organizations decided to combine their assets and resources into Champlain Housing Trust. In 2006, the merger was complete.
In 2009, the organization moved headquarters on King Street. Besides containing the staff, the building has room for 20 families.
In 2009, the trust had $43 million in assets, nearly 1,500 apartments, 440 owner-occupied homes, and 15 commercial buildings.
