The Dauphin County Land Bank Authority will use available resources to facilitate the return of vacant, blighted, abandoned and tax-delinquent properties to productive use thereby combating community deterioration, creating economic growth and stabilizing the housing and job market.

The Land Bank shall be governed by a Board of Directors comprised of seven (7) members that reflect the diversity and range of interests affected by the Land Bank’s activities.

The Land Bank will acquire, hold and transfer interest in real property throughout Dauphin County as approved by the Board of Directors for the following purposes consistent with the goals established by the Dauphin County Land Bank Ordinance, local government partners and other community stakeholders:

  • To deter the spread of blight
  • To promote redevelopment and reuse of vacant, abandoned, and tax-delinquent properties
  • To support targeted efforts to stabilize neighborhoods
The Land Bank also administers the Demolition Fund which provides grant funding to eligible projects to assist with demolition of blighted structures.  The Board considers Demolition Fund applications on a rolling basis throughout the year.  Awards are made based on the project meeting specific criteria including addressing blight, returning properties to produce use, and the ability of the applicant to complete a post-demolition project.  To apply to the Land Bank Authority for demolition funds, please review, complete and submit the application found here.
