What We Do

What We Do2018-11-29T18:07:48+00:00

We work to revitalize Dundalk. Every day.

No one entity can do it all. For 2018 – 2020, our programs are targeted in FOCUS Neighborhoods – Old Dundalk, Dun-Logan, St. Helena, Turner Station and Graceland Park.

We limit the geography of our projects to make visible, concrete changes to these neighborhoods, businesses and residents. And, we constantly build partnerships, so progress and accomplishments are far greater than what we could do alone:

Housing 

We strengthen neighborhoods by partnering with contractors to create quality renovations (Market Boost program) that improve our housing stock, attract new buyers, boost home values, and encourage home owners to invest in their properties. We partner with homeowners for Senior Home Repair, Curb Appeal and Vibrant Neighborhoods 0% Interest Loans for renovations to positively impact livability and improve existing properties.

Marketing  

We market Dundalk’s assets and neighborhoods to attract new residents, encourage home ownership and increase economic diversity. Home buyer grants programs, BE A BUYER Workshops, and Neighborhood Close Ups attract our next generation of home buyers who offer new energy, experiences and interests.

Historic Dundalk Town Center Economic Development 

We help businesses grow with our business incubation space The Forge and our pop-up shop program. We encourage entrepreneurs with vendor opportunities at Family Fall Festival, Holiday Hoopla, and our Makers Markets series. We support existing businesses with physical improvements (Commercial Improvement Grant Program), with merchant meetings and connections to County and State small business resources.

Community Engagement 

We create positive experiences for all residents with year-round free events. We support the work of neighborhood associations and other local organizations. We partner with providers who bring additional services to residents, such as credit building and financial literacy. And, we engage residents in volunteer roles of all kinds.

Stakeholders, partners, funders, local elected officials, neighborhood leaders, volunteers, residents, board members – we couldn’t succeed without you.
