Who We Are

Commited to Downtown

The Partnership is actually two entities working together as one: the Downtown Management Authority (DMA), which oversees a 106-block improvement district in the heart of Baltimore, and Downtown Partnership of Baltimore (DPOB), the non-profit that has successfully grown Baltimore’s economic and residential base. This dual structure allows for a bigger set of tools with which to solve problems and create new opportunities.
