This morning Mayor Fenty and Planning Director Harriet Tregoning held a press conference at a home on Valley Place announcing the final delivery of $900,000 in grant money for the 53 homes slated for exterior improvements in the Anacostia Historic District.

The press conference was mostly symbolic: large check, beautiful family receiving grant money, handful of residents and community supporters cheering it on --but also very encouraging to see that this process (grant applications were due last summer) actually works, and that we will begin seeing real results soon. Anacostia will be better for it.
