The Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA) will host Rebuilding the Block: A Small‐Scale Housing Developer Symposium April 26th, in coordination with City of Detroit agencies including the Department of Neighborhoods and the Housing and Revitalization Department. They need your help to make this important event a success. They are looking for 50 developers to participate in conversations regarding small‐scale housing development in Detroit.
Their objectives are to better understand strategies for rehabilitation as well as the biggest obstacles currently impeding progress.

- Property Acquisition
