The state has awarded more than $650,000 in storefront improvement grants to nearly 50 businesses in Baltimore City located in areas impacted by last year’s unrest.
As reported in The Baltimore Sun:
The Maryland Business Recovery Storefront Improvement Grant Program was established by Gov. Larry Hogan after the unrest. It’s administered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, which said it received 145 applications requesting grant funds to improve more than 180 individual buildings.
The department chose 26 high priority projects, which will result in up to $10,000 in exterior improvements for nearly 50 businesses. About three in four of the businesses were in areas severely damaged by the unrest.
Award-winners include pharmacies, community centers, convenience stores, retail stores and other businesses in Fells Point, Highlandtown, Waverly, Park Heights, Penn North, Upton, downtown Baltimore, Poppleton and Pigtown.
