The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Laying the Groundwork: Telling Our Story - Minnesota Community Land Trusts.

Howard, Teresa.

The Minnesota Community Land Trust Coalition (MCLTC) is a coalition of ten community land trusts in Minnesota. In 2006, the coalition began a data collection initiative to collect a determined set of data. The following project was conducted to determine data collection methods and practices to answer the following question: What are the data collection and reporting practices of the MCLTC members? The four components to this project include interviewing appropriate staff of MCLTC members; interviewing appropriate staff in a sample of other agencies in Minnesota who collect data on additional affordable homeownership activities; surveying other CLTs in the nation about their data collection and reporting practices; and researching options for future data collection, reporting, and sharing.
