BALTIMORE — An additional $3 million in grants to support capital projects critical for “locally-driven community revitalization efforts in Baltimore City,” will be available through the second phase of the Community Catalyst Grants Program, the City’s Department of Housing & Community Development and Mayor Catherine Pugh’s office announced Tuesday.

Phase one of the program provided $2 million in grant money and technical support for such neighborhood-based partner organizations, the DHCD and mayor’s office said in a statement.

“This is a promising moment with access to new capital that will support a diverse array of talented partners and projects,” Housing Commissioner Michael Braverman said in a statement “Our initial round of grants will bring operating strength to many local area partners. We envision capital grants being utilized in a variety of ways; including acquisition, gap financing, cooperative economic enterprises and planning efforts. We are excited for what we will accomplish together.”

Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, March 22. Guidelines for applications can be found online. The funds are expected to be distributed in May.
