“Greater Syracuse Land Bank gets $2 million to demolish, renovate abandoned homes”
“The land bank is among 19 statewide that received more than $20 million in funding, but it was one of just two that got the full $2 million available. The land bank has now received more than $5 million total from the AG’s grant, called the Land Bank Community Revitalization Initiative.
The bank here will use the money to demolish 56 “blighted” properties in and around the city, as well as to renovate eight other homes, according to a statement from the organization.”
