Ambassador Program


The Ambassador Program of the Omaha Land Bank is designed to deepen and expand the bench of stakeholders and community members from whom the Land Bank learns, and to whom the Land Bank seeks to support and serve. Through the Ambassador Program, the Land Bank hopes to identify and share learning with a diverse cohort of potential board applicants and community advocates, to provide participants with information and experience regarding the Land Bank’s programs and potential impacts, and to learn from community members how the Land Bank can continuously be a better neighbor.


Each year’s cohort attends training sessions once per month for nine months, beginning in September and ending in May. There is a minimum of one participant selected from each City Council District. Candidates from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Successful completion of the program requires attendance at all meetings, unless the participant has been previously excused, and attendance at a minimum of one Land Bank Board Meeting.


Applications for the 2022-2023 Land Bank’s Ambassador Program are now closed. Next year’s program applications will begin in July 2023.

Adopt-A-Lot Program


OMLB is looking to partner with residents, businesses, faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, or neighborhood groups who are eligible to adopt a land bank lot to create a beautiful and productive space for your neighborhood.

Through this program, not only will you be able to temporarily activate a lot without the legal and financial long-term commitments, but you can also take advantage of our lunch and learn events and access lot activation resources.
