The Lancaster County Land Bank Authority’s mission is to deter blight and to return vacant property to productive status using an unified, predictable, and transparent process, thereby revitalizing neighborhoods and strengthening the County’s tax base.

Designed as a tool to fight blight, the Lancaster County Land Bank Authority will complement programs currently available to the Lancaster County Redevelopment Authority under Urban Redevelopment Law (35 P.S. §1701 et. al.) and the Vacant Property Reinvestment Board (35 P.S. §1712.1).

Any Municipality in Lancaster County, exclusive of the City of Lancaster, can choose to join the Land Bank by entering into an Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement.  Please contact for more information or how to get started with joining the Land Bank.
