NWBP Initiatives


Community Development

NWBP supports community development projects in Northwest Baltimore. For example, NWBP works with neighborhood-based organizations to develop and submit grant applications for Baltimore Regional Neighborhood Initiative (BRNI) funding. BRNI, a program of the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, aims to demonstrate how strategic investment in local housing and businesses can lead to healthy, sustainable communities with a growing tax base and enhanced quality of life.
