Take it to the Bank: How Land Banks Are Strengthening America's Neighborhoods

Authors: Payton Heins and Tarik Abdelazim, Center for Community Progress

An estimated 120 land banks exist in the United States, and their ability to adapt to local conditions and needs is helping communities, large and small, address the negative impacts of vacant, abandoned, and tax-delinquent properties.

In Take it to the Bank: How Land Banks Are Strengthening America’s Neighborhoods, the Center for Community Progress' research of more than half the nation's land banks reveals this and other trends in the growing land bank movement. The report includes (1) characteristics of successful land banks, (2) a national scan of land banking in the U.S., (3) in-depth portraits of seven diverse land banks, and (4) a rich array of appendices featuring land bank policies and other core documents.

In addition to the free PDF version of the report, hard copies are available to purchase for $10.
