The Strategic Demolition Fund seeks to catalyze activities that accelerate economic development and job production in existing Maryland communities. The Fund aims to improve the economic viability of “grey field development,” which often faces more barriers than sprawling “green field development.” Since funds are limited, awards will focus on those projects that can have a high economic and revitalization impact in their existing communities.
The Strategic Demolition Fund is divided into two allotments based on geography. 1) Strategic Demolition Fund – Statewide is available to eligible applicants whose projects are located in all areas except Baltimore City. 2) Strategic Demolition Fund – Project C.O.R.E. is available to eligible applicants whose projects are located in Baltimore City.
Projects must be located in designated Sustainable Communities. Sustainable Communities are areas found within Priority Funding Areas and are targeted for revitalization. Read more information on the Sustainable Communities Program.
