Funding Priorities  [hide this]

To qualify for the FY25 LCDG Grant, applicants must provide services in at least one of the three (3) funding priorities listed below: 

1.     Downtown Comeback 

We have the opportunity to reimagine a Downtown where residents, workers, and visitors can live, work, and play in vibrant centers of activity for all. Looking to DC’s future, the District of Columbia will continue to position itself as a global and forward-thinking leader in the way we choose to serve our residents.

Empowering the District of Columbia to remain a city for people of all ages and at all stages of life means fighting to protect the middle class.  When Washingtonians across all eight wards have access to job opportunities and can afford to build a better life for themselves and their loved ones in the District, our residents and communities are stronger.  

2.     Public Safety 

Public safety serves as a foundation for living a healthy and happy life. We want to create significant, lasting change and not just to reverse these rising trends, but to reduce any type of violence, including gun violence, and ultimately end it.

Continuing to support our residents through investments in education, housing, and economic development will improve the quality of life of residents. 

3.     Education

Schools are the heartbeat of our communities, and every community deserves a great school. Every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and to pursue their dreams.  This starts with the basics, such as reading, math, and more. 

Recreational activities such as sports, arts, civic engagement, and youth engagement will impact the health and well-being of our residents and students.
