PROVIDING AFFORDABLE HOUSING
TO CHAFFEE AND LAKE COUNTY RESIDENTS
NEW JOB ANNOUNCEMENT:
Director of Real Estate
The Chaffee Housing Trust is seeking a Director of Real Estate to take on the responsibilities of expanding a community land trust (CLT) in rural-resort Colorado serving Chaffee and Lake County residents, in compliment to the executive director and supporting other staff or contractors as needed. The CHT provides home ownership opportunities to low and moderate-income county residents and workers who are priced out of the local housing market. The CHT uses the community land trust model of shared-equity ownership, provides homebuyer-readiness services, and acts as developer or partners with developers to build affordable housing. The CHT stewards properties in perpetuity to ensure that local affordable housing stock stays affordable and the community maintains control over land assets. The CHT is in a growth cycle with increasing opportunties to develop affordable home ownership, and the need for greater capacity to develop and manage projects, and provide services.
