Vacant Lot Giveaway: Postponed

In mid March, the Omaha Municipal Land Bank presented the Vacant Lot Giveaway to the public, a project that would allow up to three qualified applicants to win a vacant lot and up to $5,000 in redevelopment funds for their project. We were blown away by the response, and we received applications for 20 different individuals and organizations with amazing ideas to revitalize vacant lots through community-oriented redevelopment. The deadline for applying was May 27th, and we intended to announce the winners on June 13th.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to meet this June 13th deadline, and will be postponing the selection of winners indefinitely. Please know that the scoring process is still underway and we still intend to move forward with the giveaway! We will provide updates as soon as a new announcement date is selected. For the sake of fairness to those who already applied before the application deadline, we will not continue accepting applications.
