The Detroit Land Bank Authority sells eligible vacant lots to neighbors for just $100 through our Side Lot program. It is so popular, we've sold more than 10,000 Side Lots to neighbors and community partners. Our Side Lot buyers make a significant impact in the neighborhoods creating beautiful yards, gardens, and gathering spaces.
Now we want to share an exciting opportunity that could help transform a lot in your community. Detroit Future City (DFC) is offering a grant program which aims to "accelerate vacant land revitalization in Detroit." DFC will award grants between $5,000 and 20,000 for its Working with Lots Grant Program. Experienced gardeners, neighborhood associations, educational institutions, businesses, and youth development groups can submit proposals January 26th through February 18th, 2019.
