LT. GOVERNOR BROWN TO PARTICIPATE IN BALTIMORE EVENTS ANNOUNCING STATE FUNDING FOR CAPITAL PROJECTS
Events Mark Investments in Economic Development and Expanded Health Care Services

BALTIMORE, Md. (October 3, 2012) – TOMORROW, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will participate in two events in Baltimore City announcing state funding for capital projects.

Lt. Governor Brown will begin the morning at the American Visionary Arts Museum, where he will be joined by Business and Economic Development Secretary Christian Johansson to present $1.5 million in matching grants to 22 Maryland non-profit and government entities to support Star-Spangled Banner bicentennial projects. The grants will support programming, education, visitor experience and capital improvements that expand economic development and tourism-related job creation throughout the state. The Star-Spangled 200 (SS200) Grant Program.

The Lt. Governor will then join Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot and leadership from Chase Brexton Health Services for an event recognizing the start of work on the health organization’s new Mt. Vernon Center and Headquarters. Chase Brexton’s renovation of the historic Monumental Life Building will be completed in part with a $1.5 million grant from the State to support expanded community and patient-centered health care services. In lieu of the traditional groundbreaking ‘dig’, speakers, staff, and guests will contribute items that symbolize Chase Brexton’s service to the community for a time capsule which will be displayed in the new center. Founded in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood in 1978 as a volunteer-run gay men’s health clinic, Chase Brexton has grown exponentially through the years and now provides health care to more than 24,000 Marylanders; its current Baltimore City site, Mt. Vernon Center, provides care for nearly 70 percent of those patients.
