Happy Birthday Cuyahoga County Land Bank!

Congratulations to the Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation for finishing its inaugural year. So far, the land bank has acquired 212 properties and is on track to acquire an additional 500, due in large part to innovative deals they have finalized with Fannie Mae and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Greater Ohio hopes to send our birthday wishes next year to additional counties that have recently received access to this important tool and looks forward to continuing to keep you updated on  best practices and progress throughout Ohio in addressing the challenges caused by vacant and abandoned properties.
