What is the Kittitas Yakima Valley CLT?

The Kittitas Yakima Valley Community Land Trust is a non-profit organization that provides home ownership opportunites to individuals who may not otherwise qualify for traditional loans. This is done by following the Communtiy Land Trust model of home ownership. More information on this model can be found here.

 You are invited to attend our FREE informational introductory session! The session is approximately 30 minutes. Please call 509-962-5891 to reserve a time convenient for you to view the PowerPoint presentation and discuss the KYVCLT homeownership opportunities with the executive director. Presentations are held at 518 North Pine Street, Ellensburg, WA 98926. 
For a more in-depth exploration, you are invited to attend our Unlocking the Doors to Home Ownership event, which is occurring on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 4-5 from 5:30-8:00pm (both nights required) at the Elmview Conference Room (204 E 6th Ave) in Ellensburg. More information on this event can be found on our Unlocking the Doors event page.


Mission Statement

The Kittitas Yakima Valley Community Land Trust acquires and maintains land for the benefit of first time home buyers below the Area Median Income with preference given to those at the lower end of the scale. It provides secure, affordable access to land and housing for those unable to qualify for home ownership in the current market.
