Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott and the Baltimore City Department of Housing & Community Development yesterday announced an additional $5,826,582 in grant funds through the Community Catalyst Grants Program (CCG).
The CCG is a competitive awards program that provides capital and operating funds for community-driven revitalization efforts.
Eligible organizations include community development corporations, neighborhood-based development organizations, umbrella organizations, and other community organizations. Eligible projects support locally-driven revitalization initiatives and help advance neighborhood revitalization and transformation in long-disinvested areas.
“We witnessed how the initial Community Catalyst Grant funding helped leverage more than $52 million in community development work throughout Baltimore,” said Mayor Scott. “Supporting organizations rooted in our communities will ensure the positive growth and equitable outcomes this program was designed to achieve.”
