Founded in 2015, RPS Solutions, LLC is a Baltimore-based firm that specializes in all aspects of neighborhood development and asset management in rebounding areas. Founded by business executive and economic development leader Kevin Seawright, RPS Solutions is dedicated to helping increase the homeownership rate in less wealthy Baltimore neighborhoods. For Kevin Seawright, homeownership is an engine for economic growth, and an essential for improving social conditions.
In partnership with Baltimore local government agencies, Kevin Seawright and RPS Solutions plan to purchase and renovate homes that will eventually be sold to first-time homeowners. The program is already creating success stories, with people who had been priced out of the conventional housing market now able to enjoy the benefits of being a homeowner thanks to Seawright’s program.
Kevin Seawright vision even made the dream possible for a young man who for years had been trying to purchase a home. He is now the proud owner of one of the homes rehabilitated through the program.
Currently, 48.3% of Baltimore residents own their home, but Kevin Seawright and RPS Solutions aim to bring that figure in line with the homeownership rate for the rest of Maryland.
In addition to his work with RPS Solutions, Kevin Seawright is Executive Vice President and CFO of Newark Economic Development Corporation, where he puts his extensive experience in management and his expertise in budgeting and public administration to use.
