State Grant Program

There is an upcoming neighborhood revitalization state grant program that the Southwest Partnership is eligible for. The Committee discussed projects that fall under the Committee that they would like the SWP to apply for.

These include:

  • Lighting under the Carey Street Bridge
  • Lighting around Hollins Market
  • Clean up crew on W Baltimore St, street sweeper
  • Touching up murals
  • Anti-littering marketing campaign
  • Carroll Park Rec Center? (might be better for next year)

The Committee also reviewed previously submitted projects that would fall under the Committee, and decided that they were not interested in applying for music events in Hollins Market.
