Mayor Young and DHCD Announce $3.3 Million in Capital Grants

Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young and the City’s Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD) named 25 grant awards today under the Community Catalyst Grants (CCG) Program.  The grants, which total $3.3 million, are expected to help leverage over $52 million in development activity across Baltimore neighborhoods.

The CCG program is designed to support neighborhood-led community revitalization efforts.  The program provides both operating support and capital funds to neighborhood-based partner organizations.  The initial phase of CCG – a competitive awards program – provided $2 million in operating funds for neighborhood-based partner organizations.  These capital dollars are the first round of funds provided to be used for acquisition, gap financing, cooperative economic enterprises, loan funds and planning efforts.
