The Healthy Neighborhoods Program
Here in Northwest Baltimore City, Glen is part of The Healthy Neighborhoods Program. This successful program works to strengthen and revitalize specific Baltimore City neighborhoods by fostering resident involvement and leadership and by offering attractive loan incentives and grants.
