University of Maryland, Baltimore Prioritizes Community-Led Revitalization

HUD USER publishes Case Study examples that increase affordable housing opportunities, integrate sustainable features and practices, and increase access to public transportation. The projects featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

The most recent Case Study is about the community engagement activities of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). UMB has worked closely with residents and community leaders on numerous programs to revitalize East and West Baltimore neighborhoods since the 2002 Community Outreach Partnership Centers and New Directions grants from HUD’s Office of University Partnerships. With assistance from the Social Work Community Outreach Service and other university departments, the neighborhoods have improved services and facilities which have helped revitalize the community. Through these efforts the university has gained the trust and support of Baltimore’s citizens, who have since supported major UMB projects such as the University of Maryland Biopark in the Poppleton neighborhood.
