Baltimore Baby Bonus

The Baltimore Baby Bonus Fund is a proposed Charter Amendment from the Maryland Child Alliance that would create a program to provide direct financial support to new parents in Baltimore City. The program would offer a one-time payment of at least $1,000 to Baltimore city residents upon the birth or adoption of a child. The aim is to improve the well-being of children and families, while also having long-term benefits for the economy as a whole. By voting YES on the upcoming November ballot, you can help improve the well-being of children and families in our community, while also contributing to long-term economic benefits.

Baltimore has an incredible opportunity to be the first city in the United States to invest directly in the future of our youngest residents. The Maryland Child Alliance is excited to announce our proposed Charter Amendment that would create the Baltimore Baby Bonus Fund, a program that responds to the overwhelming evidence of the positive impact of direct financial support for new parents. By investing in our families and their newborns, we are investing in the future of our city.
