On the last day of school for many Baltimore City students, Larry Hogan came to Baltimore City Monday to announce some new state funding for youth jobs.
Hogan brought the National Guard with him when he moved his office to Baltimore during April’s riots. This time, he was here to open a new rec center.
At an event to open the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center in West Baltimore, Hogan shot some hoops to try out the basketball court. He also said he would make $3.3 million for the city’s summer job programs.
He also pledged $4.15 million to assist in “recovery” efforts from April’s riots. That include $2 million for homeowner settlements and $1.5 million for business recovery. Another $650,000 will go toward helping business owners repair the facades of their stores.
