The buzz about land banks is growing, and for good reason. Over the last few years, several states have passed land bank enabling legislation, offering local leaders a new tool to help reinvent and revitalize neighborhoods challenged by vacancy and blight.
All of this activity, understandably, raises a lot of questions, starting with the most basic: What is a land bank, and how does it work?
In response, we put together the Land Bank Information Headquarters. The headquarters features an interactive map of the country's land banks, as well as a land banking FAQ. We hope you find it useful!
