What We Do...

The Ingham County Land Bank Fast Track Authority was created under the provisions of the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Act, 2003 P.A.258, 124.571 et seq., and the Intergovernmental Agreement by and between the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority and the Treasurer of the County of Ingham.

The Ingham County Land Bank is dedicated to improving the quality of our neighborhoods, strengthening our communities and innovative concepts to homeownership.

The Ingham County Land Bank is a strategic economic tool which is intended to support growth and investment in our community by protecting and improving the property that has come to the County because of tax foreclosure.  The Ingham County Land Bank has been created to return tax reverted, purchased, donated and unclaimed parcels of land to productive use more rapidly than would otherwise be possible.

The Ingham County Land Bank will, in some cases concentrate its efforts on an entire neighborhood that needs reinvestment.  The Land Bank will buy, renovate and resell multiple properties in a designated area so that they become an attractive purchase to someone that wants to be a homeowner.  This kind of concentrative reinvestment not only attracts good neighbors, but it also helps to protect an area from falling into decline, protects property values and maintains a balance between homeownership and rental properties.

The Ingham County Land Bank creates homeownership through options like down payment assistant programs, land contract terms and simple and competitive financing options through local lenders. Homeownership becomes a reality and builds wealth and hope.

The mission, once a property is the responsibility of the Ingham County Land Bank, is to be good stewards of the property and to increase homeownership.
