Great news for our neighborhood: The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development recently sent a letter to all ANC 5C commissioners informing us that the Deputy Mayor "proposes to award a grant under the Neighborhood Investment Fund's Neighborhood Grants Program to . . . North Capitol Main Street [NCMS, Inc.]."
The grant provides $15,000 for tree box beautification and maintenance from the 1300 to 1700 blocks of North Capitol Street. My letter of support, which explains the benefits of this grant, appears here. The 30-day comment period runs from August 22.
Congratulations to NCMS, Vicky Leonard-Chambers, Pat Mitchell, and everyone involved with securing this grant.
