May 6, 2022

Mayor Brandon Scott on Thursday announced a second round of grants to violence prevention initiatives, awarding $300,000 from the city’s American Rescue Plan Act allocation to seven nonprofit organizations. “These historic investments we continue to make in our community-based organizations are what make our approach to violence reduction different from the disparate, one-off efforts of the past,” said Scott. “We are gaining momentum in the cultivation of Baltimore’s [Community Violence Intervention] ecosystem and the reduction of violence in our city.”
