Washington Interfaith Network wins $550 million investment in DC neighborhoods.

WIN created a $450 million Community Benefits Fund and a $100 Neighborhood Investment Fund to ensure that the investment in downtown development is matched by an equivalent investment in DC’s neighborhoods.  Revenue from the funds is dedicated to affordable housing, neighborhood retail, libraries, other public facilities, infrastructure repairs and upgrades in the city’s poorest neighborhoods, including the The new Washington Highlands Library.
