Since 2010, more than 200 land banks and land banking initiatives have launched across the United States. Interest in the work of these diverse entities continues to grow rapidly. In response, Community Progress has established the National Land Bank Network (NLBN) as a space for land bank leaders from across the nation to connect, share new and innovative tactics, and discuss strategies for addressing the challenges land banks face both in their day-to-day operation and as a tool for advancing equitable development outcomes. As part of its launch, NLBN conducted a nationwide survey of land banks earlier this year. This webinar will provide an opportunity to introduce the new network and share some of the early findings that have emerged from this effort.
Attendees will have the opportunity to:
• Learn more about the purpose and early goals of the newly formed network
• Get a sneak peek at NLBN’s early survey findings
• Hear about the cutting-edge work member organizations are engaged in
