Offered once per quarter, NLBN Online Trainings provide a hands-on experience in a virtual “classroom” setting, where—unlike traditional webinars—participants can interact with presenters in real-time, ask questions to unpack “in the weeds” topics, and network with fellow participants.

What do NLBN Trainings include?

  • A pre-training knowledge assessment, which helps faculty shape their presentations according to audience level.
  • Curated supplemental materials, which help participants further understand training concepts.
  • Office hours with faculty to ask additional questions following the training webinar.

Trainings are free for NLBN members and available to non-members at a fee.

March Training: Getting Land Banks' Commercial Projects to "Pencil Out"

March 12, 2024 | 12 PM ET | Online

In this session, learn how real estate projects, small and large, can "pencil out" and get done by land banks and collaborative partners using available financing and funding tools such as real property tax exemptions, bond financing, affordable housing and vacant and abandoned building funding opportunities under ARPA, and more.

Participants will walk away with a better understanding of:

  • States' local economic development mechanisms and applicability to land banks
  • Basic developer concepts such as reading pro formas, required ROI, and "shovel readiness" of sites
  • Intermediate-level discussion of how states' public finance programs are calculated into projects' capital stacks


  • Jeffry Harris, Partner, Bricker Graydon
  • Adam Seeley, Attorney, Bricker Graydon
