The program, which began in January of this year, is available to faith-based groups in the Baltimore area with city-based real estate holdings that they plan to develop into affordable housing or community facilities. Participants go through a series of five monthly training sessions, and receive up to five hours a month in specific technical assistance, before receiving certification from the Schaefer Center.
