20/20 Campaign

The Baltimore Housing Roundtable has developed a vision for Fair Development in Baltimore. The 20/20 campaign calls for real, annual investment in neighborhood-driven development- development that puts us in charge of our own communities & doesn't price us out. We call on Mayor Pugh to designate $20 million in the capital budget for permanently affordable housing and $20 million for projects that employ community residents to deconstruct vacants and create public green space.

Recently residents joined together to lift up the voices of over 20,000 Baltimore City residents who have signed a petition in support of putting the 20/20 Campaign in this year's budget. Watch more below!
