About Springfield Community Land Trust

The Springfield Community Land Trust sells homes to people who are credit-worthy with low to moderate incomes. While buyers own the house, the land beneath their home belongs to the community land trust and the homeowner holds rights to the land by paying a small fee through a leasehold agreement. About Habitat for Humanity of Springfield

Habitat for Humanity provides many homeowners with affordable housing with exceptional loan terms that encourage low-income families to develop and enjoy the stability that comes with home ownership. The stable and secure housing made possible by Springfield Community Land Trust and Habitat for Humanity of Springfield enables many individuals and families to invest in their own future, improve their financial status and positively contribute to the economic development of the community. # # # For more information, please contact: Brendan Griesemer, Planning and Development Manager, Springfield Planning & Development Department 417-864-1695 or bgriesemer@springfieldmo.gov; LeeAnn Camey, Coordinator, Springfield Community Land Trust, 417-631-4482; or Larry Peterson, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, 417-829-4001 ext. 107
