BUILD wins $155 million for school construction in Baltimore

Working alongside partners Transform Baltimore, the Baltimore Education Coalition and Child First, on Monday, June 10 BUILD won passage of a new bottle tax to be dedicated to school construction. This was a long, hard battle for Baltimorechildren. The bottle tax alone will generate $10 million a year that will service $155 million in bond funding, which will be used in 2013 to start building and modernizing at least 10 elementary schools while creating 1200 new jobs.
