The Detroit Land Bank Authority’s mission is to return the city’s blighted and vacant properties to productive use. DLBA utilizes a variety of sales programs to make homeownership and land purchases accessible to Detroiters. Plus, they take their commitment to revitalization one step further with their Compliance program, requiring renovation and occupancy to improve neighborhoods and combat real estate speculation. The Detroit Land Bank Authority works directly with individual buyers, as well as Community Partner organizations and developers for projects big and small.
