Community Development

Baltimore Row Houses

We support programs that enhance the livability of neighborhoods through preservation and reinvestment, projects that promote job creation and economic competitiveness, and initiatives that increase the city's tax base.

The Abell Foundation encourages initiatives that attract resident investment in neighborhoods, promote sustainability, increase economic development opportunities and nurture entrepreneurial talent to increase the livability of neighborhoods, the number of residents, the number of jobs and the size of the tax base.  As successful households are key to neighborhood health, the Foundation supports efforts to remove barriers preventing residents from stabilizing household finances and invests in community-led projects to improve energy efficiency, increase fresh food access, enhance neighborhood amenities and reclaim neighborhood green space.  The Foundation maintains an interest in programs that address concentrated poverty, racial wealth disparities, and tie the economic health of Baltimore City to the region.
