Community Land Trust Program/Rio Homes


The Community Land Trust Program is a tool to assist in meeting the housing needs of Flagstaff and its workforce.
  • This program takes the cost of purchasing land out of the total cost of buying a home.
  • The City of Flagstaff will reserve ownership of the land while providing security of tenure and rights of use to the homeowner.
  • The land is provided to the homeowner through a 99-year renewable lease which may be passed on to heirs.
  • The price for which the house may be sold is restricted in exchange for assistance with the initial purchase.
  • These units will be maintained as permanently affordable through the program.
