Dundalk Renaissance was founded in April 2001 by a steering committee of volunteers leading a broad-based, community planning process. If you’re counting, that means this is our 20th anniversary as an organization, and we could not be more proud of how we are creating a Strong Dundalk!
As a community development organization we host events that bring neighbors and families together, like Family Fall Festival, Holiday Hoopla and our Milestone Award Ceremony. We also work to stabilize and celebrate our community by investing in it.
To date, we’ve attracted $23.5 million to the Historic Dundalk Town Center, $112.3 million in new mortgages throughout Dundalk. We don’t just attract money to Dundalk, we encourage others to invest. We believe Dundalk’s best days lie ahead, which is why we incentivize developers to create quality renovations through our Market Boost program which raise property values by 40-50% and encourage homeowners to make repairs and improvements on their homes. Strengthened home values mean more generational wealth that Dundalk families can count on. Over the years Dundalk homeowners have invested over $65,000 into their home.
At its core, Dundalk is a wonderful community. We value the small-town feel, and know that feel is thanks to folks of different socioeconomic backgrounds. This is why we’re proud to have programs like Senior Home Repair, which helps Dundalk seniors in need age in place. By attracting and winning state funding and securing small but generous individual gifts, we’ve been able to make much-needed repairs for 41 senior households totaling $228,115.18 in repairs!
