The funding will allow the enrollment of 100 new people in the B'more Fit program and the ability to reach 10,000 others through health fairs and other community events.

Since B'More for Healthy Babies was established in 2009, infant mortality has declined by 38 percent to its lowest point on record.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and city health officials announced Wednesday that Baltimore's infant mortality rate reached an all-time low in 2015 — even as the city's homicide rate reached a record high.
