Applications for all of our programs are closed.
In order to adhere to social distancing guidelines, we are no longer accepting walk-ins or conducting in person meetings.
We aim to empower citizens and organizations by making it possible for them to take ownership of tax delinquent properties not to speculate, but to redevelop and revitalize their neighborhoods.

The Birmingham Land Bank Authority(BLBA) remains committed to its goal of putting problem properties back into productive use and empowering citizens to take charge of their neighborhoods in the City of Birmingham.
During this unprecedented COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, the Birmingham Land Bank Authority staff continues to work on projects and tasks necessary and proper to the continued operation. For the foreseeable future, our team will be working remotely. Our Attorneys continue to work on quiet title actions as they can. Obviously, there will be delays as we rely on a multitude of parties to carry out our operations. Please, bear with us.
We have suspended all in person office visits and engagements. If you have inquiries related to existing contracts and applications between you and the BLBA, please submit your inquiry, with specifics, at www.birminghamlandbank.org/contact/ . Applicants and purchasers, with active agreements, that do not have access to the web may call our offices at 205.254.2414. Please leave a message and we will get back with you as soon as possible.
There were several informational sessions scheduled for the next 6 weeks. We are postponing them until CDC recommendations permit gatherings again. If you have any general inquiries, please feel free to submit them at www.birminghamlandbank.org/contact/. We will work to address those questions in writing and/or via video uploads in the coming weeks.
I encourage you to stay updated by visiting the Centers for Disease Control Website (www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html) and by Texting BHMCOVID to 888-777 for updates and information about #COVID19.
We look forward to resuming normal operations and appreciate your interest in investing in your neighborhoods. Stay up to date by visiting us at www.birminghamlandbank.org.
