The Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System join economic inclusion initiative in Baltimore.

The Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System recently joined 24 other Baltimore organizations to form BLocal, a sweeping economic inclusion initiative that will invest at least $69 million into Baltimore’s economy over the next three years.

Through BLocal, companies of all sizes have laid out specific plans to increase their support for Baltimore by spending more on goods and services supplied by disadvantaged, women-owned or minority-owned businesses in the city; providing summer jobs for city youth; and mentoring growing businesses. Participants have also pledged to spend more on design and construction contracts with local and minority- and women-owned businesses.
