Grow Baltimore's population by making homeownership possible
Earlier this year, Baltimore's challenge to the 2010 Census established that the city had 621,074 residents on April 1, 2010. This revised number will now be used by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as the baseline for counting toward her goal of growing the city's population by 10,000 families (22,000 people) in a decade. We're already on the way with 621,342 people as of March, and Neighborhood Housing Services of Baltimore, the nonprofit organization that I lead, has more good news on that front.
