In 2015, we launched HopkinsLocal to support economic growth, employment, and investment in Baltimore. We held ourselves accountable by setting measurable three-year goals in construction, hiring, and purchasing, and we were proud to surpass our original expectations.

Now we have begun the next phase of the initiative and set new goals that will carry us through 2022. We invite you to learn more about our commitment to Baltimore and follow our regular progress reports. The links below will assist you in getting involved in our initiative.
