Staff from Civic Works with Program Manager David Giusti. Civic Works has been able to perform 269 energy audits and upgrade 714 homes with their 2017 LMI grant program funds.

The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) is proud to see our long term grantee, Civic Works, helping those in need during COVID-19 with much needed food relief. Food delivery is usually a smaller work stream at Civic Works but the organization kicked their food focus into high gear to address the needs of residents during the coronavirus crisis.

The Real Food Farm at Civic Works yielded over 5,000 pounds of fresh local produce in 2019 for 8 communities. Learn more here about how Dana Stein, Executive Director of Civic Works and his team are working to address the rising need for food during this pandemic.
