The recent designations of neighborhoods as historic districts in DC has come with an added benefit: grants for home repairs.
Yesterday, the Office of Planning announced that the agency is accepting applications for the Historic Homeowner Grant Program. The grants from the program, for low- and moderate-income homeowners in various historic districts around the city, provide up to $25,000 for repairs. Awardees in the Anacostia Historic District can receive up to $35,000
The eligible historic districts are Shaw, Takoma Park, U Street, Fourteenth Street, Capitol Hill, LeDroit Park, Mount Vernon Square, Mount Vernon Triangle, Blagden Alley/Naylor Court, the Strivers’ Section, and Mount Pleasant. The Wardman Flats, Emerald Street and Kingman Park historic districts are also eligible for the first time this year, the latter having just been designated in 2018.
