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.
