How a Land Bank Works

Land banks are an efficient and effective system to eliminate blight. They identify, acquire, and maintain problem properties and then transfer them back to responsible ownership and productive use in accordance with local zoning and neighborhood goals and priorities.

Board & Staff

Our Board is comprised of local economic development and urban planning professionals, and neighborhood and community stakeholders. Our staff are all Hartford residents and community leaders, enthusiastic about their work as catalysts for vacant properties, homeownership advocacy, and workforce development.

Meetings

The Board of the Hartford Land Bank meets quarterly. Meetings are open to the public.

Contact us to inquire about available properties.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Hartford Land Bank is to identify, acquire, and redevelop – directly or through partnership with government, nonprofit, and private sector partners – vacant, abandoned, tax-delinquent and/or distressed properties in the City of Hartford, where such redevelopment will: improve community and economic vitality of Hartford neighborhoods, ensure long-term sustainability of impacted properties, and enhance the quality of life for residents and businesses. Hartford Land Bank coordinates its activities with other community, regional and neighborhood partners that pursue objectives and goals complementary to that of Hartford Land Bank. The City of Hartford is a key partner and the Hartford Land Bank Executive Director will be the primary liaison to the City of Hartford.
