DBA "the BCLT"

The Bolinas Community Land Trust (BCLT) is a non profit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining affordable housing in Bolinas, CA. We offer rentals and resources for people in need of affordable housing. But the BCLT is so much more...learn how we are a vibrant force in our community click here

Why is Affordable Housing Important?


You choose to live in one of the most beautiful and unique communities in the world. In addition to the natural beauty that surrounds us, Bolinas is so special because of our community, because of the people who live and work here.

Not everyone can afford to buy a home in Bolinas, and many people who have lived here for decades are finding it more and more difficult to remain.


Young families who want to raise their children here are increasingly leaving Bolinas because of lack of housing.

Our workforce, the people who fix your house, garden or work at local businesses are also challenged to find rentals they can afford.

The BCLT recognizes how important diversity is to a community and through a dedicated volunteer board and small staff, we work every day to help create affordable housing for our town.

GREAT NEWS: New roof at
Historic Gas Station Building (click here for more info on Bo-Gas):

Our HUD funded new roof on 6 wharf is happening! Westec Roofing (who also did the Firehouse roof, and is the only roofing company that could comply with the Davis Bacon HUD requirements in the bid process) will commence work tomorrow, Wed. July 31- Friday Aug. 2 and install a new roof on the historic gas station building at 6 Wharf Rd.

This project is completely funded through a grant the BCLT wrote, and we are grateful to have been funded $23,000 by HUD through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, so we did NOT have to do ANY fundraising locally in order to ensure the safety and stewardship of our building. Thank you, Marin County, for awarding us the funds to do this much needed repair, and for paying for it!

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but please know that this will ensure the longevity of our property and our ability to provide safe and affordable housing in Bolinas (which is becoming harder and harder to find).

Our tenants have been waiting for a long time for this roof, and I deeply appreciate their patience.

Best, Lesa Kramer
BCLT Executive Director
