Expanding Economic Opportunity for Local Residents and Business
MARCH 19, 2015 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Please join the Annie E Casey Foundation for the next webinar in our Community Matters series - Expanding Economic Opportunity for Local Residents and Business - which explores the complex issues surrounding community change — and the lessons we and other have learned from our work in communities around the country.
The East Baltimore Revitalization Initiative - the largest urban redevelopment effort in Baltimore in decades — aims to transform a neighborhood north of the Johns Hopkins Medicine campus into a mixed-income community with new and renovated housing, retail and commercial development, improved schools and safety, more engaged residents and a larger employment base.
A major priority of the initiative was to increase economic opportunity through job creation and contract opportunities for local, minority and women-owned businesses. This webinar will explore and highlight the project’s efforts and achievements to that end, as well as similar endeavors underway in New Orleans.
