Amid Criticism of Management of ARPA Funds, Scott Announces $30 Million for Affordable Housing

Mayor Brandon Scott was upbeat as he announced the awarding of nearly $30 million in grants for affordable housing projects planned in Baltimore, using the city’s $641 million in federal ARPA funds.

At an event held at a West Baltimore church, recipients of the grants came up to the microphone one by one yesterday to be recognized and handed a certificate.

Among these was $1.9 million for the Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation for 33 units of permanent supportive housing for men experiencing homelessness.
