Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Detroit Land Bank Authority

Detroit, Michigan



The land bank was established by the Detroit City Council in 2008 to promote neighborhood stabilization and economic growth through the acquisition, management, and disposition of tax-delinquent properties that have reverted to city ownership. Funding from this two-year grant allows the land bank to expand its staff and to establish a structure that accelerates Detroit’s neighborhood-revitalization efforts.
