Mayor Murial Bowser and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development announced on July 22nd that Ward 8 in the Anacostia Arts and Culture District will be awarded a $4 million grant to create “new opportunities to highlight and support the artists, makers and entrepreneurs who keep DC creative.  We know how critical it is to invest in the arts – to inspire people, to grow and preserve our culture, and to bring the community together,” Bowser said in a press release.

The grant will help fund new events and programs and provide opportunities for local artists who work in media, including visual arts, food, theater, music and film.  A shuttle will be added for residents and visitors to help bring patrons to Ward 8, and build more business for its restaurants and retail stores and create jobs for Washingtonians.
