The Baltimore Main Streets program is an approach to neighborhood revitalization by providing customized support and public resources to each district in order to attract new businesses and new jobs to the neighborhood. Baltimore has the third largest urban Main Streets program in the U.S., with nine fully designated communities. Each district’s Main Street program has a different strategy for spurring economic activity, but support may include marketing and event planning, financial assistance for design and promotions, architectural services for facade renovations, streetscape improvements, technical support, access to grants, and more.

Baltimore’s eight active Main Street programs are:

​From 2000-to 2014, through the Baltimore Main Streets program, 683 façade improvement grants were awarded in these nine neighborhoods, totaling nearly $3.6 million dollars. As there is a match component to these grants, this amount of public investment has generated approximately $12.9 million in private investment.

Baltimore Main Streets also organizes annually, Miracle on Main Streets, the country’s first city-wide holiday shopping promotion designed to encourage the public to shop in their local Main Streets for their holiday needs. The city-wide promotion draws thousands to Baltimore’s Main Street neighborhoods, with offerings of free parking and a unique holiday experience.
