The Center for Community Progress (Community Progress), in partnership with the Housing & Community Development Network of New Jersey (HCDNNJ), invite you to apply for the New Jersey Land Bank Launch Scholarship. Two communities will be selected through a competitive application process to receive no-cost technical assistance to explore and ultimately implement new land banks in the Garden State.

Each scholarship will include:
- Up to 100 hours of technical assistance from a team of national land bank experts and New Jersey community development experts;
- A two-day site visit that will focus on deeper conversations with local governmental staff, community partners, and resident leaders and educational community forums to ensure inclusive engagement; and
- A written deliverable to document key observations and locally tailored recommendations for successful, community-driven implementation.

Please refer to the "New Jersey Land Bank Launch Scholarship" information found here for additional details about the program and application.  If you have any questions about this scholarship opportunity, please contact Liz Kozub at
