What we do
The Ingham County Land Bank Fast Track Authority is a local governmental authority established by and intergovernmental agreement between the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority and Ingham County. It receives whatever property is left over from the Ingham County Treasurer's annual tax foreclosure process. The Land Bank works to put these properties back onto local tax rolls and into productive use in neighborhoods. It does this by eliminating blighted properties, renovating some properties, building new housing, selling vacant lots, renting some houses and condos,establishing local gardens and otherwise revitalizing neighborhoods.
Our mission is to build great places, strengthen our communities and generate sustainable economic prosperity. The Land Bank is a strategic economic tool for all of Ingham County that supports growth and investment within our community by returning tax reverted, purchased, donated and unclaimed land to more productive use more rapidly than might have been possible otherwise.
The Ingham County Land Bank assists in creating better communities by bringing together neighbors, government, funders and other community stakeholders to enhance neighborhoods through housing renovation, blight removal, gardening and other efforts that strengthen the quality of life in greater Lansing.
