According to reports, Baltimore is reportedly looking to push a government program that will allow the sale of vacant buildings for one dollar each to revitalize certain areas.

A bill was adopted by the Baltimore City Council that would change up “marginal neighborhoods by matching construction ability at the grass roots of Baltimore to production of affordable housing for workers’ families and neighbors.” It was noted the bill is similar to a 1973 program named “Dollar House.” The premise of the program was to sell old and downtrodden houses owned by the city for $1.

Along with that, the program allowed buyers to get loans with low-interest rates to fix up the property as long as they vowed to stay in the home for a set period.
