Declines in local revenue, increases in tax foreclosures, real estate market disruptions, and the growing potential for problem properties–the negative impacts of the COVID-19 crisis will likely extend for years to come. Residents, governments, and nonprofits can start to plan now for the most equitable and effective approaches to property vacancy, abandonment, and deterioration across a range of markets in rural, urban, and suburban communities.

Attend this webinar to learn how land bank–a proven tool for stabilizing neighborhoods, meeting community needs, and supporting equitable development–can play a vital role in community recovery.

Join land banking expert Kim Graziani for an in-depth session on:

  • the basic principles of successful land banks, land banking programs, and the critical differences between these two approaches
  • how land banks need to be integrated and aligned with local property tax enforcement systems, and
  • applying the lessons learned over the last ten years of land banks and land banking programs in the wake of the mortgage foreclosure crisis to design and implement a long-term, equitable recovery from COVID-19


  • Kim Graziani – Vice President and Director of National Technical Assistance, Center for Community Progress
