Employment-help program wins $160,000 grant

The Arc Baltimore said Monday that it expects to launch an employment-assistance program for people with developmental disabilities, an effort helped by a $160,000 grant from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.

Weinberg's two-year funding to the group is a "challenge grant" that requires matching dollars. The Arc Baltimore has raised the first $80,000.

The group's planned program, Career Catalyst, will be in Hunt Valley. Adults with development disabilities would receive job-readiness education and internships.
