Oof, thanks to Grant for sending word on the budget. Go to pages 96.

From the Mayor’s Office:

“On February 12, 2018, the Trump Administration announced it had eliminated funding for the DC Tuition Assistance Grant (DCTAG) program in its Fiscal Year 2019 Budget Request to Congress. Established nearly two decades ago in 1999, DCTAG was created to expand higher education choices for college-bound residents of the District of Columbia by providing grants of up to $10,000 toward the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition at public colleges throughout the US, Guam and Puerto Rico.

Currently DCTAG is helping DC students attend over 300 colleges and universities nationwide. Since its inception, the program has served over 26,000 students – many of whom would not have enrolled in college without the program. The administration’s request to eliminate funding comes just a few weeks after President Trump’s newly proclaimed “National School Choice Week” which reiterated the administration’s commitment to refocus education policy and investment on students. By terminating funding, the administration is adding unnecessary roadblocks that may prevent students from achieving their dreams and will limit their ability to pursue diverse career goals .

DCTAG is worthy of continued funding as an investment in our future. We call on Congress to approve this investment in higher education for DC students.

Sign the petition to urge Congress to fully fund DCTAG in the FY2019 budget.”

11th and Park Road, NW

From an email:

“We have a new website. www.11thandBark.org. It is filled with photos of dogs who use the park and has lots of information. Most important, it has a new petition and action items.

Whereas the last petition was focused on convincing the the first petition was designed to tell District officials that we didn’t want WMATA to sell the park. But now we need to tell the Mayor & the DC Council that we want the District to buy the property and designate it an official dog park.

The Mayor is currently crafting her budget and should present it to the Council in March. Ward One Councilmember Brianne Nadeau already requested that Mayor Muriel Bowser include money in her budget to buy the property for the purpose of a dog park. Now, it’s our turn to tell the Mayor to include money in her budget to buy the park and Councilmembers to support it.”

“My property was damaged due to improper construction by unlicensed construction crew on property next door. Dangerous construction, collapsed patio & support column on my property, property encroachment, trespassing. What steps can I take to prevent further damage?”
