ST. LOUIS - As part of SLDC’s efforts to realign processes to meet its Economic Justice Priorities, the Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) will not accept any new applications to purchase LRA properties starting July 2022, excluding Prop NS properties. At this time, LRA will continue to process existing transactions, but will not accept new purchase offers through October 2022 while it reevaluates and retools its processes. LRA receives titles to all tax delinquent properties not sold at the Sheriff's sale and through donations.
