New York Land Bank Association

The New York Land Bank Association, Inc. was established in 2015 to support land banks across the state. Since the NY Land Bank Act was passed and the state's first land banks were established in 2012, these organizations have turned to one another to share ideas and strategies for how to best provide this important community service.  The Association was created to:

  • Inform local governments, citizens, and other stakeholders in New York regarding the establishment and operation of land banks in their respective communities;
  • Foster and promote the sharing of information, resources, and services among land banks in New York and throughout the nation;
  • Provide technical assistance, guidance, and other resources to land banks in New York; and
  • Provide and support governmental relations to benefit and further the purpose of land banks in New York.

The New York Land Bank Association also learns from land banks engaged in this work across the county, often through interactions facilitated by partners at the Center for Community Progress, which support governments and nonprofits engaged in fighting blight and property abandonment.

CenterState CEO partners with and supports the New York Land Bank Association to advance mutual interests in creating communities that thrive and helping people prosper. By supporting and partnering with the NYLBA, CenterState CEO is helping communities address distressed properties and turn them back into productive use.
