Baltimore: Perkins Homes

The Housing Authority of Baltimore City and the City of Baltimore were awarded a $30 million FY2017 Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant for the Perkins, Somerset, and Oldtown neighborhoods – collectively referred to as the PSO neighborhood. Surrounded by key city destinations, a lack of historical investment, and the obsolete Perkin Homes public housing development has left the neighborhood behind while others have experienced rapid growth. However, through a planning process inspired by the Choice Neighborhoods model, the community has established a new vision for PSO. Guided by this vision, Baltimore will use the Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant and leverage commitments to develop vibrant, mixed-income housing; revive key commercial corridors; redevelop blighted properties; enhance public safety, and provide families with the tools they need to achieve
their personal goals.
