Dear friends and supporters of The L’Enfant Trust,
In case you missed it, the Washington City Paper published an article
on February 3rd highlighting the latest on The L’Enfant Trust’s Historic Properties Rehabilitation Program and our work in transforming distressed properties into affordable homes for the Anacostia community.
The article explores how our historic preservation rehab program could be a model for the more than 150 city-owned properties across the District
, and a way for the city to better use its own land to house people. As quoted in the article, Council Chairman Phil Mendelson said, “My only regret is that the city has done nothing to scale this program to [include] more houses.”
