The Land Bank works to revitalize neighborhoods surrounding its properties.
Abandonment, vacancy, blight and other challenges such as crime work in a cycle. Our neighborhood revitalization efforts are meant to counter that cycle. Every year we apply for grant funding from a range of sources including foundations, organizations, and the state and federal government. We have received funding to support work such as housing renovation and cleanup of Brownfield sites. We do not do this work alone. Our neighborhood revitalization work is strengthened by our many partners, including neighborhood-based organizations and local institutions.
The Land Bank believes that its work will be more meaningful, effective, and fair, when informed by the insights and experiences of the community. Learn more about how and why we engage with the community by watching this five-minute video!
