important meeting wednesday night

On Wednesday, May 21 and Thursday, June 5, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, the Office of Planning will host meetings for the Neighborhood Investment Fund (NIF) for the Bloomingdale-Eckington NIF area. Both meetings will be held at Mt. Bethel Baptist Church located at 75 Rhode Island Avenue, NW .

The Neighborhood Investment Act of 2004, as amended (NIA) created a non-lapsing, revolving fund outside of the General Fund, called the Neighborhood Investment Fund (NIF). The NIF is funded through an annual appropriation of 15% of a personal property tax, not to exceed $10 million.

The purpose of the NIF is to finance economic development and neighborhood revitalization in 12 targeted areas of the District.

The Office of Planning is partnering with the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development to work with community stakeholders to prepare investment plans for the 12 Neighborhood Investment Fund Target Areas. Please join us for this series of workshops to help determine how best to use the funds for Bloomingdale and Eckington.

NIF is managed by the District of Columbia 's Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development. DMPED Website:
