Dear Friends,


In light of recent developments related to COVID-19, including Governor Cuomo’s State Emergency Declaration, the Troy Community Land Bank office is temporarily closed and will remain closed until further notice.  The office will reopen as soon as practicable.


Public meetings are being conducted by conference calls which can be accessed by following dial-in information posted to meeting announcements at this website.  As always, the public is invited and encouraged to attend by phone.


The Troy Community Land Bank has always been anchored by a commitment to our community.  With the risks of coronavirus, this concern takes on greater urgency.  We are taking these measures to reflect public health guidance and requirements to reduce transmission of the virus and ensure the health of our residents, neighbors, board, staff and the greater community.


Staff will continue to work remotely during the closure.  We are able to receive messages left on our office phone, 518.328-0244, and will reply as quickly as possible.  Inquiries can also be directed via email:


TCLB will continue to closely watch the evolving situation.  We thank all  of you for your patience and understanding as we work, through this unprecedented period.


Be safe – be well – stay healthy.  For your benefit; for everyone’s benefit.

Strategic Planning

We strengthen neighborhoods by acquiring, rehabilitating and reselling vacant buildings and land.


Our properties are a mix of donations, foreclosure purchases and private market purchases.


We enlist local contractors to stabilize, secure and beautify each of our properties.

Property Sales

Our properties are sold through a competitive bidding process, with a preference for owner occupancy.
