Central Baltimore Partnership
The Central Baltimore Partnership has served as the catalyst for investment and revitalization of the area from Mount Royal Avenue north to 23rd Street, between Howard Street and Greenmount Avenue. CBP’s numerous volunteer task forces have been instrumental in the creation of hundreds of units of new and rehabbed housing, both affordable and market rate; commercial development; creating an employment recruitment and referral pipeline for area residents; and introducing a private microenterprise organization to provide small loans to area businesses. An exciting new development in late 2016 was the launch, with the leadership of the Johns Hopkins University, of the Central Baltimore Future Fund, a $10 million loan pool designed to work in concert with CBP’s comprehensive neighborhood revitalization strategy to eliminate blight and stimulate economic growth. This grant provided funds for core operating support to the Central Baltimore Partnership.
