The Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative program aims to demonstrate how strategic investment in local housing and businesses can lead to healthy, sustainable communities with a growing tax base and enhanced quality -of-life. The program attempts to focus on areas where modest investment and a coordinated strategy will have an appreciable neighborhood revitalization impact.
Community Development Organizations with an approved strategic neighborhood revitalization plan may apply for Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative funding for projects located in Sustainable Community Areas in Baltimore City and inner beltway of Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties.
If a Community Development Organization is interested in applying to the program and does not have an approved strategic neighborhood revitalization plan, then it must submit a plan at the time of application along with its projects for which it is requesting funds. Prior to any funding awards, the strategic neighborhood revitalization plan must be approved by the Department.
Community Development Organizations are strongly recommended to apply with partner organizations, including Community Development Financial Institutions. Cross-jurisdictional partnerships are eligible and encouraged.
Projects should capitalize on the strengths of a community, be targeted in a specific neighborhood or set of neighborhoods and be part of the approved strategic neighborhood revitalization plan.
Projects/activities typically include, but are not limited to:
If you have an approved strategic neighborhood revitalization plan, contact your Regional Project Manager if you have any questions concerning the program or current funding opportunities.
