Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corporation (The Land Bank)

The mission of the Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corporation is to return land and vacant abandoned properties to productive use, reduce blight, increase property values, support community land use goals, and improve the quality of life for all county residents. 
 
In late 2010, the Trumbull County Land Reutilization Corporation (TCLRC) was established by the Trumbull County Treasurer’s office, with support from the Trumbull County Commissioners and the Trumbull County Prosecutor. The TCLRC and Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership (TNP) have partnered since the inception of the Land Bank, and went into a contractual agreement in March of 2013 because of a shared commitment to increase quality of life throughout Trumbull County by returning derelict vacant property back to productive use. TNP manages the sale, transfer, disposition, demolition, rehabilitation, and reutilization of all Land Bank owned property.
 
TNP is assisting the TCLRC with the demolition of Land Bank owned property via Ohio Housing Finance Agency’s (OHFA) Neighborhood Initiative Program (NIP). This program has allotted 3.2 million dollars to the TCLRC, for the demolition of residential structures. TNP has developed eleven (11) target areas, ten (10) within Warren City and one (1) in Girard. There will be additional target areas developed throughout the County to assist other municipalities, townships, and villages as Land Bank inventory allows.  
 
In April 2015, the TCLRC was awarded an additional $986,616.00 for being one of the high performing Land Bank’s in Ohio. The award accounted in number of properties in the pipeline for acquisition as well as the number of properties currently in the Land Bank that are demolition candidates. With the services of the Trumbull County Treasurer’s, Prosecutor’s, Recorder’s and a number of other county departments, TNP was able to submit a competitive application that brought this additional funding into the county
