About

The Blight Elimination Program (BEP) assists with the removal of blighted properties in targeted areas within the city of Jackson. The department works in partnership with approved non-profit agencies and land banks (program participants) to strategically target residential single-family properties for demolition, site improvement, and acceptable reuse.

The BEP's purpose is to reduce foreclosures, promote neighborhood stabilization, and maintain property values through the demolition of vacant, abandoned, blighted residential structures, and subsequent greening/improvement of the remaining parcels within the city.
