Litchfield Housing Trust, Inc. (LHT) is a non-profit organization established in 1989 to ensure that Litchfield (Litchfield, Bantam and Northfield) always has homes available for people of a diverse income range.
LHT is not a town agency; it is a non-profit with the mission of preserving homes in Litchfield that are affordable to families at or below 80% of the median income, by family size, for our community.
We accomplish this mission by leveraging public and private funding sources to develop new, or acquire existing housing stock, both for single-family ownership or rental. In all cases LHT retains the onwership of the land and sells the home to the homeowner, thus reducing the selling price of the home. Emphasis for housing opportunities is directed toward income qualified families whose housing needs are not being met.
So that people who work here can live here.
So that families, young and old, will not have to leave the Town to find affordable housing.
So that Litchfield will be a diverse community.
