Expanding Our Impact

Community Development

Reinvestment Partners’ national advocacy on Bank Walk-Away properties has been instrumental in propelling the problem of community blight – an inherently local problem – to national attention.

We’ve expanded our reach and impact from our own neighborhood into other seriously blighted neighborhoods in Durham, as well as state-wide. We’re working with community partners, big banks, and small investors to transform “zombie” properties like the ones featured in the video below.
