Home Futures Institute logo with homes and sun
The Washington State legislature set aside funding to support training and capacity building for Washington State CLTs. The NWCLT Coalition is partnering with Grounded Solutions Network (GSN) to deliver the comprehensive program.

The Home Futures Institute will be fast-moving and is designed to include:
  • An Advisory Committee to help review and design curriculum
  • New tools and resources
  • Virtual introductory trainings for community members and real estate professionals
  • In-person comprehensive trainings for both start-up and established CLTs
  • A data standards working group
  • Summary landscape reports and recommendations for moving forward
The Institute will include three 2-day place based trainings on/around:

March 7-9 in the Leavenworth area
April 3-5 in the Seattle area
May 1-2 in Blaine prior to the NWCLT Coalition Gathering

The trainings will include two full days of programming with travel so participants should plan on being away for up to three days each session.

Washington CLTs that meet the state definition shown below can participate in the training at no cost and can expect to receive compensation to offset their out of pocket costs such as staff time, travel and hotel.

Participants from outside of Washington, public agencies, or those which do not meet the CLT definition below may be able to participate provided that they can cover their own costs. The NWCLT Coalition may be able to provide some scholarships, on a case by case basis. Both cost information and scholarship information will be available soon, but please go ahead and register now to indicate your interest.
Organizational Information

 ** Please note that priority for participation will be given to Washington State organizations that meet, or aspire to meet, the above definition. We will be reviewing and approving additional requests to participate as space allows.
One or two individuals from each participating organization must commit to participating in all cohort activities. We may be able to accommodate additional participation (up to 4 per organization) if space allows. List potential participants below in order of priority.
Participant Information

Grounded Solutions Network requires that any employee, Board member, contractor or event attendee participating in GSN-related business travel be "fully vaccinated". For the purposes of these guidelines, "fully vaccinated" means that two weeks have passed since a second dose of the 2-dose series for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson's vaccine.
