Join the Milwaukee Community Land Trust.

If you believe in the transformational power of homeownership for all and you’re a resident of the city of Milwaukee, we want you to be a member. And if you live in the neighborhoods we’re working in, even better! 

What does membership mean for you? 

A chance to lead. 

As a member of the MCLT, you get a voice and a vote. You will have opportunities to serve on committees, sit on the board of directors and help build a future that includes affordable housing for everyone, forever. 

A chance to serve.

 Empower new homeowners by guiding them through day-to-day responsibilities — from budgeting and paying bills to making simple repairs, choosing reputable contractors, and engaging in their community.

It’s easy to join.

MCLT members must live in the City of Milwaukee and dues are $1 per year. They also must have expressed interest and support for the ideals of the Milwaukee Community Land Trust: that land should be held for the public good with democratic oversight; the implementation of sound urban planning principles for the benefit of the people of Milwaukee; and that affordable housing is a universal human right.

To vote in the annual elections that occur in the first quarter of the year, you must have paid your dues in that current year.  Contact Lamont Davis at [email protected] if you have questions about membership.

Pay your dues online or in person.

You can pay your $1 annual membership dues in person to Lamont (executive director; [email protected]) or Chris (administrator; [email protected]). You must provide your name, mailing address, and email address.

How to pay your dues online:

  • Step 1: Make a donation of at least $1
  • Step 2: Complete this new member form if you have never been a member before. Complete this renewal form if you have been a member in the past, even if your membership lapsed (if you are not sure, use the renewal form).
  • We will match your membership form to the donation you made.

Your membership is for the calendar year. All memberships expire on December 31 and must be renewed for the new year.
