Maryland Giving $5.5M To Community Legacy Projects

BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland is giving $5.5 million in Community Legacy grants to projects across the state.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown plans to announce the funding on Wednesday in Baltimore. The grants will fund nearly five dozen projects in 19 counties and the city of Baltimore. The grants are designed to strengthen communities by retaining and attracting businesses and encouraging home ownership. Projects include façade improvements, rehabilitation of blighted commercial properties and streetscape upgrades.

Brown and officials with the Department of Housing and Community Development also plan to appear at an event in Prince George’s County on Friday to discuss Washington area projects.
