Luke Broadwater, Baltimore Sun, January 31, 2018
Baltimore’s Board of Estimates on Wednesday is scheduled to approve a deal that would turn over control of the city’s new $12 million fund for children and teens to Associated Black Charities for one year.
Approved by voters in 2016, the Baltimore City Children and Youth Fund was designed to provide grants to youth organizations that have not been able to receive government support in the past. It is the brainchild of Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young.
Mayor Catherine Pugh controls the five-member Board of Estimates, which must approve the deal with ABC.
