Neighborhood projects awarded $180,000
Mayor Kurt Schmoke recently awarded more than $180,000 in Neighborhood Incentive grants to community groups in Baltimore.
The money will be used for neighborhood projects. For example, the Dr. Lillie M. Jackson Elementary School, the Rosemont Elementary School, Neighborhood Housing Services and Ash-Co-East/Coppin Heights Neighborhood Association are building a playground for able-bodied and handicapped children.
