Congratulations to Victoria Sisk from the School of Sociology, who received a SBSRI Dissertation Research Grant. 

Victoria's research investigates an innovative model for addressing the affordable housing crisis, gentrification, and displacement: Community Land Trusts. CLTs are nonprofits that create long-term affordable housing by removing land and buildings from the speculative market. Victoria draws on in-depth interviews with CLT workers and analysis of legal documents to examine how CLTs fit into, or challenge, racial capitalism and the delegated welfare state.
