Detroit Working Group: Land Contracts & Affordable Homeownership

house house
Join us for an in-person working group on land contracts and affordable homeownership in Detroit.

For neighborhood leaders and other Detroit residents, this working group will cover how land contracts can both help and hinder affordable homeownership in Detroit, and you'll have the opportunity to weigh in on a new tool designed to help potential buyers tell the difference.

For practitioners, this working group will provide a chance to network with representatives from other local organizations engaged in similar work and shape the direction of Poverty Solutions’ newest community education tool.

This working group is a part of Poverty Solutions' community experts initiative, a quarterly event series that aims to deepen our commitment to working with Detroit residents and leaders on action-based research. We convene community leaders with both lived and professional experience confronting poverty to share insights and generate innovative ideas for action.

Please note that this event will be held outdoors, in accordance with U-M and CDC guidelines. Please wear a mask if you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. Snacks and drinks will be served, so please RSVP.

The working group will take place at covered picnic tables at Clark Park in Detroit, along Scotten Avenue, between Vernor Highway and Porter Street.

Let us know how we can ensure that this event is inclusive. Contact Poverty Solutions Assistant Director of Community Initiatives Afton Branche-Wilson at or (567) 318-3027 with questions, requests for accommodations or access needs we can help facilitate.
