Southwest Baltimore Neighborhoods Receive Nearly $700K for Community Projects

South and Southwest Baltimore communities are receiving an influx of financial support to the tune of $671,918 in community grants to support projects and programs in multiple neighborhoods, thanks to the South Baltimore Gateway Partnership (SBGP).

The neighborhoods that will benefit from this grant money include Cherry Hill, Federal Hill, Otterbein, Pigtown, Sharp-Leadenhall, and others. The partnership is governed by a board of directors made up of residents and business owners from the area.

Funding for these grants is provided by the Local Impact Grants generated by video lottery terminals, including at the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore. SBGP was established in 2016 to help administer the funds generated by the terminals so that they improved the communities surrounding the casinos that created the revenue.
