Summary

Centers for Independent Living (CILs) help people with disabilities achieve or maintain more self-sufficient and productive lives in their communities. People with disabilities are assisted in exploring alternatives to institutionalization and are encouraged to make their own decisions about how they will live. CILs directly provide or coordinate through referral those services which assist people in increasing their abilities to exercise control over their lives. Control over one’s life means having a choice of acceptable options that minimize reliance on others in making decisions and performing every day activities. This includes managing one’s own affairs, participating in day-to-day community life and fulfilling a range of social roles.

Summary

Our organization was founded by nonprofit leaders and stakeholders seeking to promote affordable housing for first time home buyers at or below 80% of median income in the Madison and Dane County area.

Description of Services

The Madison Area Community Land Trust (MACLT) is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that has been taking land off of the speculative market for current and future generations in Madison, Wisconsin, since 1991.Our organization was founded by nonprofit leaders and stakeholders seeking to promote affordable housing for first time home buyers at or below 80% of median income in the Madison and Dane County area. Housing prices in the Madison area have risen beyond the means of moderately-low income people: the median price of a home in Madison jumped from $83,000 in 1991 to $205,000 in 2005, and over $300,000 in 2020, while wages have stagnated.Buying a home through MACLT saves homebuyers 30% on average, or $56,000!Under the community land trust (CLT) model, homeowners purchase their house, but not the land (this lowers the purchase price). The land is leased by the homeowner from the land trust. When MACLT homeowners sell their home, 75% of the appreciated value stays with the house, so it’s more affordable for the next buyer. The CLT homeowner also gets to keep the equity they invested into the home plus 25% of the increase in value.
