D.C. gets grant for Walter Reed work
The District has won a $1.4 million grant from the Department of Defense to help defray the costs of pre-development work needed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center campus, city officials announced Thursday.
After the facility closes next year as part of the Base Realignment and Closure process, the District will assume control of 62.5 acres from the federal government.
"This grant will help fund technical analyses needed to move this important project forward," said Valerie-Joy Santos, the deputy mayor for planning and economic development who co-chairs the Walter Reed Local Redevelopment Authority.
The grant will cover 90 percent of the needed pre-development work, which includes reuse planning consultant services, city officials said.
