Mayor Bowser to Celebrate Two Groundbreakings Adding 1,850 Homes & Food Access Points Along the Anacostia River

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

(Washington, DC) On Thursday, May 19, at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will be joined by District officials and community members to celebrate the groundbreakings of two significant projects bringing housing and amenities along the Anacostia River: The Stacks and The Bridge District. Mayor Bowser will also announce the second round of awardees of the Food Access Fund, a grant program focused on increasing grocery stores, restaurants, fast-casual restaurants, and other food access points in areas with low food access, including Wards 7 and 8.

Throughout Infrastructure Week, Mayor Bowser is highlighting investments in infrastructure and initiatives focused on building a more connected, resilient, and equitable DC. In March, Mayor Bowser announced the creation of the DC Build Back Better Infrastructure Task Force, which will advise on priority projects to be funded through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The Task Force is made up of experts from District agencies and external partners who will ensure the District’s effectiveness in securing and deploying federal dollars while creating projects that will impact residents across the District and generations of Washingtonians to come.
