Look At What's Ahead!

Our Next Big Initiative is Coming Soon

Watch for our announcement of an upcoming housing rehabilitation matching grant program. This program is being designed to provide up to $30,000 per home renovation to qualifying social service and faith-based partners.

The program has two broad goals: 1) renovating distressed properties and improving neighborhoods; and 2) providing safe, clean and affordable housing for the special population clients of these very passionate and successful organizations.

The program is currently being designed and is slated to be announced later this fall.

Stay Tuned!

Our Mission

Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit subsidiary of The Cuyahoga Land Bank, was created to provide supportive services and opportunities to vulnerable populations and communities, and the organizations that serve these populations.

What We Do

Watch this video to learn more about how, in partnership with local municipalities and nonprofit organizations, The Cuyahoga Land Bank is making an impact in Northeast Ohio.

Partnership Is The Key

How We Serve Those Most In Need

We formed Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities to provide low-cost/no-cost homes and housing support to the most vulnerable populations in our community, including adults aging out of foster care, single moms transitioning from homelessness, women escaping domestic violence and trafficking, disabled veterans and others.

Through The Cuyahoga Land Bank, we have donated over 100 homes to these vulnerable individuals. We’ve been able to accomplish this with help from our sponsors and by partnering with municipalities, nonprofit organizations, faith-based communities, and local volunteers.
