BIP 2.0 The Problem The Baltimore Integration Partnership is seeking to overcome barriers to limited employment and economic opportunities for Baltimore City low‐income residents. This area of focus grows from our experiences in the first round where the BIP found that the supply of jobs, particularly entry level employment, was outstripped considerably by the significant numbers of under and unemployed residents.
Projected Regional Employment Growth 2000 2035 Baltimore City 460,600 485,000 5.3% Suburbs 1,073,800 1,521,900 41.7% Source: Baltimore Metropolitan Council; DLLR Employment opportunities are increasingly projected to be in suburban locations. As of November 2013 there were 25,463 individuals unemployed in Baltimore City
Baltimore’s Eds and Meds The Baltimore Metropolitan Council is projecting that job growth in the Baltimore region over the next eight years in the education, bioscience and medical industry sectors will approach 100,000 new jobs. 26 anchor institutions influence Baltimore’s neighborhoods.
Eds and Meds Employment in Baltimore 38% of Baltimore City’s employment was in the education and health care industries in 2011 Eds and Meds represent the region’s largest employers and the projected job growth is significant Across the U.S., anchor institutions represent about 11% of inner city employment

BIP 2.0 Goals Connect local, small and minority-owned businesses to anchor procurement opportunities in Baltimore and the region. Make intentional local investments in real estate and small businesses to foster and support broader community benefit. Insure equitable opportunity connecting low income residents to jobs within anchors and anchor-supporting businesses in Baltimore and the region.
BIP 2.0 Strategies Remove barriers to facilitate the participation of local/small/minority business in anchor purchasing Foster anchor real estate and small business investment decision making to leverage maximum intentional benefit for communities Remove barriers to training and employing local residents in order to increase local hiring by anchors and create a model for other industry sectors to adopt
The BIP 2.0 Next Steps Launch workgroups and develop work plans: Local Purchasing / Small Business Development Local Hiring/ Workforce Development Community Development / Capital Through a collective impact approach, implement purchasing and hiring pilots; identify and move forward capital opportunities driven by anchors. Identify and address barriers and policy challenges (anchor / public). Track and evaluate progress; explore sustainability of initiative.
