The Suffolk County Landbank Corporation (SCLBC) is currently in the midst of a grant-funded pilot program to acquire and rehabilitate vacant, bank foreclosed homes, selling the homes to new, income qualified homeowners as affordable housing.
The Suffolk County Landbank Corporation is initially focusing its pilot program on the three most heavily impacted towns, Brookhaven, Babylon, and Islip, to:
• Acquire 11 vacant and bank foreclosed residential properties between 2015 and 2016, while also leveraging property discounts and donations as a 501C3 organization
• Partner with Not-For-Profit Community Development organizations to rehabilitate and maintain the properties
• Supplement Suffolk County’s current workforce housing programs by marketing and selling the properties to eligible homebuyers
