Grant Programs

Our Main Street Businesses Make it Special


The Baltimore Main Streets program is an approach to neighborhood revitalization by providing customized support and public resources to each district in order to attract new businesses and new jobs to the neighborhood. Baltimore has the second largest urban Main Streets program in the U.S., with nine fully designated communities, including Belair-Edison.


From 2000-2014, through the Baltimore Main Streets program, 683 façade improvement grants were awarded in these nine neighborhoods, totaling nearly $3.6 million dollars. As there is a match component to these grants, this amount of public investment has generated approximately $12.9 million in private investment.


Each district’s Main Street program has a different strategy for spurring economic activity, and support may include marketing and event planning, financial assistance for design and promotions, architectural services for facade renovations, streetscape improvements, technical support, access to grants, and more.


Baltimore City and the State of Maryland offer a variety of programs for businesses in specific industries and geographic areas, which can help reduce costs. Learn more about tax credit and other assistance programs from the Baltimore Development Corporation.
