The success of our disposition, rehab and stabilization programs depends on responsible end users for properties in our care. Check out our available properties.
Our programs are focused in three main areas:
- Putting Properties Back to Productive Use – We dispose of properties to organizations, municipalities and individuals with a vision.
- Single-Family Home Rehab and New Build – We rehab or construct new-build infill housing in our focus neighborhoods through REACH.
- Historic Structure Stabilization – We preserve landmark structures throughout our community for future reuse and redevelopment.
Putting Properties Back to Productive Use
Provides an opportunity for owner-occupants to acquire residential vacant land adjacent to their home. Purchasers will be required to incorporate the vacant lot into their existing yard. The intent of the program is to reduce the number of blighted vacant lots and return those unproductive parcels to tax-generating status, while improving neighboring property values.
Gardens + Greens
Transforms vacant lots into gardens or community green space. Any party interested in purchase may apply. All applicants must be able to show a viable redevelopment project and the ability to maintain the property.
Single-Family Home Development Program
Returns underutilized, blighted residential properties to productive use through sale to interested parties for redevelopment. To buy a property under this program, the project must include the rehab an existing home, infill construction of a single-family home or redevelopment of a vacant lot by incorporation into an adjacent single-family home development.
Multi-Unit, Multi-Property and Commercial Development
