Land Banks are an important tool for community revitalization

The NLBN Summit will be held at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, in Cleveland, Ohio on October 16-17, 2023. It is the only national event dedicated to urban, suburban, and rural land banks. Since 2010, over 300 land banks and land banking initiatives have launched across the United States to tackle the growing problem of vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties and help revitalize communities. The national movement to steward land equitably for the public good is growing and land banks are leading the charge.
