There’s also a lot more in the pipeline. For instance, recently (in early 2017) the Central Baltimore Partnership received $745,000 in Project Core funding from the State of Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development. This funding that will go to 3 large scale redevelopment projects undertaken by CBP Partners.
On the distribution side, on May 10 of 2017, CBP will announce another round of its HCPI Community Spruce-Up Grant Program. Last year, grants from this program, administered by CBP (which are for small neighborhood projects) awarded a total of $192,000 dollars, courtesy of the program’s sponsors: Johns Hopkins University and the State of Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development (through BRNI) .
It’s not all about infrastructure, either. We have also done things such as Art Walk in Old Goucher, an event that was rated one of the “Best Art Walks in Baltimore” by CBS Baltimore. And recently, working with our Partners Strong City Baltimore and Johns Hopkins we introduced the Explore the Core: Central Baltimore campaign to tell people more about all the great things that are happening here.
