What is Baltimore proposing?

Baltimore aims to engage people leaving incarceration and their families to help reduce violent crime in the city, as part of a broader engagement effort. The city, led by the Mayor’s Office on Criminal Justice, would use a mix of traditional and technology-based approaches to engage this population, and is looking to the City Accelerator for support and best practices for this initiative.


Public response is one of several criteria being used by the City Accelerator to select cohort cities. The number of ratings or comments by themselves do not determine final status or selection.
