2016-2018 Progress

Over the first three years of HopkinsLocal, the university and health system:

  • Increased the percentage of addressable construction spending that was committed to contractors that were minority-owned, women-owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises. In the third year of the program (FY 2018) Johns Hopkins’ commitment to those contractors and subcontractors was 23.5% of its addressable spending, or $48.5 million.
  • Hired 1,017 people who live in focus area Baltimore City ZIP codes for a set of targeted positions.
  • Spent $54.3 million more in targeted categories than if spending had remained at the baseline level.
  • Helped 66 small, local, minority-owned, women-owned, or disadvantaged businesses in the design and construction industries expand their skills and connections through the BLocal BUILD College.
  • Hired 402 justice-involved individuals.
  • Created development plans with 26 nonlocal suppliers to increase those companies’ efforts to hire, procure, or invest in Baltimore.

Results from all three years of the first HopkinsLocal phase in comparison to the initiative goals are available in the FY18 Progress at a Glance document.
