Neighborhood Investment in Baltimore: Understanding trends for the City and Impacts of EBDI

Can investment disparities be reversed for particular neighborhoods? The East Baltimore Development Initiative (EBDI) is one of the nation’s largest, longest standing, and most prominent comprehensive community initiatives, with over $1B of investment since 2003. Join us for a research presentation examining how Baltimore is doing overall in accessing private, public, and mission capital flows. And we will do a deep dive on EBDI and the neighborhood where works. The research uses a rigorous method to test the effects of EBDI relative to comparison communities.
