2011

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.
