| March 23, 2021 | 0 Comments

Last month, the South Baltimore Gateway Partnership (SBGP) announced $455,326 in community grants to support 16 community projects in South Baltimore. This is the sixth round of community grant funding for SBPG.

SBGP manages approximately $7 million per year in Local Impact Grant funding from Maryland casinos. An equal amount is managed by the Casino Local Development Council (LDC), which has an advisory board of community members and spends funds at the direction of the Mayor of Baltimore. SBGP awards Community Grants twice a year.

SBGP includes staff, Executive Director Brad Rogers, and a Board of Directors comprised of members of neighborhood associations, business owners and nonprofit directors, and elected officials.

SBGP budgets about $1 million per year to Community Grants, about $1.5 million per year to Enhanced Services for public spaces in the community, and $3 million per year to Transformational Projects.

“Now more than ever, we need the grassroots work of neighborhood organizations to ensure the health and vitality of our community,” said Rogers in a press release. “We are proud to invest in these neighborhoods, and excited to support organizations that are making a difference.”
