The Center for Creative Land Recycling is the leading national nonprofit dedicated to transforming communities through land recycling. This means converting abandoned or vacant commercial and industrial properties to assets that benefit the community, create jobs, and generate new tax revenues. We help transformations happen by educating and convening communities, government agencies, and the private sector to create optimal conditions for reinvestment. Over the past 20 years, we have assisted in bringing millions of dollars in grants to places across the U.S. and trained nearly 10,000 community-oriented specialists through our professional workshops.
Land reuse has gained prominence as a vehicle for economic revitalization, environmental justice, climate mitigation, and equity. CCLR is connecting the dots between land reuse and these issues to better serve our stakeholders. To see our 2020 accomplishments, click here.
