The Foundationís efforts are mostly focused on Baltimore City, which, though making considerable progress, continues to be burdened with far too many problems associated with a high concentration of urban poverty. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on addressing complex challenges to break the cycle of urban poverty. It seeks to create solutions that are both innovative and will ensure accountability. Grants are awarded in the following categories: education, health and human services, criminal justice and additions, workforce development, arts and culture, conservation and environment and community development. The Foundation awards three types of grants: planning, seed funding for start-ups and demonstration programs, and capital projects. Grants are awarded six times a year. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
