He left public service and joined Washington D.C.’s Tito Contractors. He managed the multimillion-dollar budget that was used to build several housing projects. Kevin Seawright also worked for the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation as the CFO and V.P. where he successfully raised funds to build housing developments.
In May 2018, he was able to partner RPS Solutions with the National Community Stabilization Trust (NCST). This partnership is designed to accelerate the pace of low and middle-income people being able to buy homes in Baltimore. RPS Solutions can buy available residential properties in Baltimore before they are made available to purchases by the general public. These are homes that had been foreclosed on and vacant for an extended length of time.
Kevin Seawright has given back to the community of Baltimore in other ways as well. For Christmas 2017 he led a toy drive at the Christ Haven Pentecostal Church which also featured a luncheon free to the public. He brightened up the holidays for many families by providing gifts to children who otherwise might not have received any.
