Baltimore wins $900,000 grant for business center

Baltimore has won a $900,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce to launch a minority business development center, the agency said.

The city was among seven winners of a $7.3 million grant competition intended to increase minority-owned businesses' global competitiveness and job creation.

The Commerce Department's Minority Business Development Agency said the grants will run for three years, except for one going to a group in Connecticut that will last for four.
