Kevin Seawright and RPS Solutions LLC are seeking to provide affordable housing in the City of Baltimore. RPS Solutions was founded in 2015 by Seawright with the vision of providing affordable housing to strengthen communities. Seawright hopes Baltimore’s current home ownership level of 48.3% will grow significantly due to his efforts. This will not only strengthen neighborhoods but also provide economic benefits and a more vibrant community. RPS Solutions connects lenders to individuals seeking home financing. They also manage assets and construction and renovation projects. RPS is currently developing properties in Baltimore and these surrounding areas: Carney, Cedonia, Belair-Edison, and West Edmondale. Seawright believes that home ownership is the most important aspect of strategic wealth development.
