Welcome to the Wayne County Land Bank

Thank you for visiting our site! The Land Bank is a public entity that promotes community development across Wayne County. Currently, the Land Bank owns and manages over 1,000 tax-foreclosed public properties. Check out some of our properties under the Community Development Parcels tab, or search all our properties.  Please click here to search all our properties where you’ll also be directed to fill out our online application if you’d like to purchase a property.

MI-Hope Program: If you are inquiring about the MI-Hope Program, you must fill out an application directly on MSHDA’s website to be considered for the program. Our office will not contact you unless you fill out an application first. Once you apply, our office will review your application and then reach out to you. To be eligible for the MI-Hope program, the deed to the home needs to be in the name of the applicant, the home has to be insured, and the taxes must be current.  This is not an “emergency repair program” as it can take several weeks to hear from anyone regarding your application. Please click here for a direct link to MSHDA’s website to apply for the program. For application assistance, please call United Way/211 number at (844) 477-0340.

External Home Repair Program: The Wayne County Land Bank is looking to enroll residents of the City of Inkster in a external home repair program funded by the Wayne County Land Bank and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. The intention of the program is to provide repairs on the front of your house including but not limited to roofing, steps, and railings. The external home repair program is for owner-occupied, single-family homes that are in good standing with their property tax and mortgage payments. The project cost is not to exceed $10,000 and the owner must agree to live in their home for five years following the repairs. Please click here for further information.

The Land Bank Board of Directors will hold its Regular Meeting scheduled for August 10, 2023 at the Wayne County Treasurer’s Office located at 400 Monroe, 5th Floor, Detroit, MI 48226. For further information, please click here.
