National Heritage Areas are valuable economic contributors to the regions in which they operate. The partnerships they create and facilitate, and the efforts put forth to attract visitors, create economic development, and preserve the culture, history, and assets of their regions truly make a difference in local communities. The Baltimore National Heritage Area generates $534.5 million in economic impact, supports 6,110 jobs, and generates $38.2 million in tax revenue.
