Get ready to clean the streets for the annual fall cleanup 🍂

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott's annual Fall cleanup day to make Baltimore streets cleaner is happening again, on October 23. Registration is open now and bags will be available to pick up for two more days (check the post for locations). All you do is pickup your bags, clean where you live, and dispose of them yourself or you can drop them off.

$80 million invested in the Baltimore Health Department

The Baltimore City Health Department will receive $80 million to support its response to the Covid-19 public health emergency. The funds will go towards increasing testing in the neighborhoods that need them the most, additional personal protective equipment (PPE), and food insecurity. The Office of Recovery Programs said this is the first of many funding announcements.
