Share Your Project on May 21st
Do you have a project or program that's working to address vacancy? 

Sign up to share your idea in a series of lightning rounds that will take place at the Vacancy Collaborative Workshop on the morning of May 21st. These high energy, minute-long overviews will highlight activities already happening in St. Louis. We encourage a diversity of ideas that may include a vacant lot project, a building rehab or reuse, a neighborhood program, policy efforts, and more. 

If you would like to make a lightning round presentation at the workshop, please email by May 15th to submit your idea.

What is the Vacancy Collaborative?
The Vacancy Collaborative (VC) is a coalition of partners committed to the reduction of vacant property as a top priority in St. Louis. The VC is not a stand-alone entity, but a coalition of community representatives, private and non-profit stakeholders, and City agencies. The VC helps to coordinate existing vacancy efforts under one umbrella and encourages the public and private sectors to work together toward solutions in a comprehensive and coordinated way. Head to for more information.

Funding to support coordination of the Vacancy Collaborative was provided, in part, by Missouri Foundation for Health, the Missouri Department of Conservation, and the Community Builders Network of Metro St. Louis.
