Eligibility Review

Next Steps and Important Details

You will receive a written response from the Land Bank as soon as possible. Please be patient as we receive a high volume of applications each year.

When you are contacted by the Land Bank, you may be asked to enter into a purchase agreement at that time. All qualified neighbors are eligible to puchase vacant land under the Land Bank's policies. Properties are not sold on a "first come, first serve" basis. If there is more than one qualified applicant for a property, that property will be split between all applicants. You may be asked to pay a portion of the costs of a boundary survey if the property is split. Vacant land is usually sold for $150–300 per parcel. The Land Bank reserves the right to sell vacant land for its fair market value or for the value required by grant guidelines.

Applicant's Commitment

I understand that this application is not a contract and that any proposed sale must comply with the Land Bank's Policies and Procedures to proceed. Everything written in this application is true to the best of my knowledge.
