The Alexandria Police Department and local non-profits are getting a federal funding boost as part of the new omnibus funding bill.
Rep. Don Beyer (D) who represents the 8th District highlighted a few of the benefits to Alexandria in the FY 2023 omnibus bill approved on Friday.
According to Beyer:
- $1,500,000 for the Alexandria City AHDC Arlandria Housing+ Project, a multi-phase, mixed-use project that will combine 475 units of affordable housing with commercial, retail, and community space
- $1,000,000 for Full Deployment of Body-Worn Cameras in Alexandria Police Department
- $1,500,000 on behalf of ALIVE!, Inc. for the Alexandria Community Food Resource Center
- $750,000 for the Notabene Drive, Four Mile Rd., and Old Dominion Blvd. Flood Mitigation Project, Arlandria
The $1.5 million to the Alexandria Housing Development Corporation (AHDC) is going to support a new housing project in the Arlandria-Chirilagua neighborhood.
The additional body-worn camera funding follows an earlier federal boost in grant funding for Alexandria’s body-worn camera program.
This bill has funding I secured for Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, and Fairfax County projects to make our community healthier, boost clean energy, strengthen our infrastructure, support affordable housing, feed the hungry, improve law enforcement transparency, and more. 2/ pic.twitter.com/GAjKnLvFju
