Having the same goals doesn’t always mean being on the same page, especially when your partners are spread across many neighborhoods and doing everything from exhibiting pictures, to maintaining safe streets. The Central Partnership provides a planning framework that enables its partners to be on the same page (literally).
Many projects in the Central Baltimore area involve multiple organizations. The Central Baltimore Partnership is always available to assist them in collaborating with each other.
Although many of our partners are large organizations with vast infrastructure, others are small groups that can use some assistance in creating plans, organizing meetings, writing grants, getting the word out about what they are doing, or just finding out who to reach out to — so their ideas can become a reality. The Central Baltimore Partnership is there to lend a hand. There’s no better example of this than the state-sponsored Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative (BRNI) program. In the first year of the program, on behalf of its partners, CBP created a grant proposal that channeled $1.485 Million to 12 redevelopment projects in Central Baltimore in 2014.
Sometimes the Central Baltimore Partnership takes the bull by the horns to initiate and administer a grants program with our partners. The HCPI Spruce-Up Community Grant Program is one example.
Whether it’s behind the scenes with movers and shakers, or just shouting from the highest mountaintop, the Central Baltimore Partnership promotes Central Baltimore and the HCPI-A Call To Action, an agenda that we think will make a great area even better.
