Grounded Solutions Network holds its annual membership conference and peer training event in Atlanta, focusing on transforming vacant abandoned, and deteriorated properties into community assets.


Land access, land value, inclusive housing and shared equity are intrinsically intertwined and the foundations of the CLT movement.

The Intersections Conference is an annual meeting between Grounded Solutions members, housing practioners, stakeholders and strategic partners from the US, Canada and other parts of the world to promote the CLT model, build capacities and a stronger movement for affordable and inclusive housing in the region. The 2019 edition of Intersections will culminate with an overnight expedition to Albany, Georgia for a historic 50th Anniversary celebration of New Communities, Inc. – widely recognized as the first Community Land Trust (CLT) in the nation as part of the American Civil Rights Movement.
