The Baltimore Development Corporation (BDC) is coordinating with city and state agencies and the federal government to identify resources available for businesses. We want to know how you are being affected by taking our brief business impact survey at https://bit.ly/2UohyJv. By taking this survey, you will be included in a database that will enable us to update you directly as new information becomes available. 

BDC has also created a website to serve as a repository of information and resources for both residents and businesses and will be continuously updated as new information becomes available. Please visit www.BaltimoreTogether.com for a more comprehensive list of resources for businesses, workers and general public.
