The state of New York is set to give an additional $20 million to the state’s land banks as part of a continuing effort to fight neighborhood blight throughout the state, the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced this week. The funding will come from the state’s settlements with Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, both of which agreed to multi-billion dollar mortgage bond settlements earlier this year.
