Baltimore to restart COVID relief program, distributing debit cards to 15,000 households

February 11, 2021

After a failed start under a previous administration, Baltimore is again kicking off a $6 million program to distribute debit cards to city residents affected economically by COVID-19. The initiative, dubbed the COVID Emergency Assistance Program, is funded by the city and administered by the Open Society Institute-Baltimore. It is expected to issue $400 prepaid debit cards to up to 15,000 households affected by COVID. The cards will be targeted toward immigrant households or those with ex-criminal offenders as well as LGBTQ community members and the homeless.
