The Land Bank supports innovative community groups and organizations in the cleaning, maintaining, and beautifying of otherwise vacant properties in Genesee County.

Clean & Green has been a program at the Land Bank since 2004. Through the program community groups seasonally maintain concentrated clusters of vacant lots held by the Land Bank. Each group maintains at least 25 lots every three weeks and receives a stipend of at least $3,000. Learn more about how community groups improve the appearance of the neighborhoods and provide jobs for local residents by watching this five-minute video!

Groups are selected to participate in the program through a competitive application process. The Clean & Green program is supported through grant funding. For more information on Clean & Green contact Raynetta Speed, by phone at 810-293-0663 or e-mail the Clean & Green general mailbox

Applications are due by 3:30 on Friday, February 24, 2017.
