Maryland Legislature’s Speaker Michael Busch and Maryland Housing and Community Development Secretary Ray Skinner announced that Central Baltimore Partnership (CBP) is the recipient of a $1.485 million grant for 12 projects within their area of operation through the Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative (BRNI).
“This grant represents an extraordinary opportunity for the neighborhoods of Central Baltimore to continue their forward progress. The recipients represent the range of needs critical to make this community robust and ensure that its residents trust it to be a safe and vibrant place to live, work, and be engaged citizens,” said Fred Lazarus IV, president of the Maryland Institute College of Art and chairman of the CBP. “Every Baltimorean should be happy to return home each day, and we are proud of the leadership the residents in Central Baltimore are showing, along with its businesses and cultural, educational, and civic institutions.”
The event was held at the corner of North Howard Street and Lorraine Avenue at Miller’s Square II, a homeownership project by Seawall Development, one of CBP’s partners included in the CBP award.
