National Land Bank Network Summit

Equipping Land Bank Leaders with the Tools to Effect Real, On-the-ground Change

About the NLBN Summit

The Inaugural National Land Bank Network (NLBN) Summit is the only national event dedicated to urban, suburban, and rural land banks. Since 2010, over 200 land banks and land banking initiatives have launched across the United States to support the growing inventories of vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties. Today, the success of land banks of differing sizes and scale has created an important opportunity to build a national movement to steward land strategically and equitably for the public good. 

The NLBN Summit will explore the latest strategies for land banks to address vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties by providing space to showcase innovation and forums for nurturing new ideas. Through uniting leaders with common challenges, the NLBN Summit will equip every land bank with the tools to effect real, on-the-ground change.

About the Host

Since 2010, the Center for Community Progress has impacted the lives of millions nationwide by transforming vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties into assets for neighbors and neighborhoods. As the leading national, nonprofit resource for urban, suburban, and rural communities seeking to address the full cycle of property revitalization, we work with state and local governments, national partners, and resident leaders to reform vacant property systems and policies, ensuring these properties are returned to productive use that benefit the surrounding community.
