naacp.jpgBALTIMORE (AP) _ The Baltimore Development Corp. is making a push to keep the NAACP's national headquarters in the city.


The civil rights organization announced in 2006 that it would move its offices to Washington, but the move never took place.

Now, the NAACP is looking at sites in Washington, Silver Spring and Baltimore.

The city's economic development agency has compiled a list of more than 15 locations in Baltimore's central business district that could meet the organization's space needs. A BDC official says the NAACP has visited four of those potential locations.

The BDC is also offering a $500,000 grant to help cover relocation costs if the NAACP stays in Baltimore.
