Leveraging Land Banks: the Power of Partnerships to Create Housing Opportunity
11:00 am to 12:00 pm
Free to all
In the years since the Great Recession, the number of land banks in the Unites States has grown to over 250 and counting. These land banks take many forms, but most are conferred with special powers that can make them a valuable tool for communities seeking to convert vacant and abandoned properties back to productive use, particularly when paired with the right policies and supported by effective partnerships. Up for Growth’s "Leveraging Land Banks" webinar will feature land bank leaders and experts to discuss policy considerations to set land banks up for success, how they increase impact through partnerships, and where they see untapped potential for land banks to have even greater impact.
