What We Do 

The State Land Bank serves an important role in community and economic development by returning property to productive use. This disposition of property helps revitalize communities across Michigan by strategically selling vacant, abandoned, foreclosed, blighted or otherwise unproductive property to an owner who has the desire to repurpose the land to provide value and create safer and stronger communities in the process.
