Councilmember Matt Frumin Announces His FY 2024 Budget Priorities to Advance a “Ward 3 for All”
Frumin will leverage the budget process to fund future-focused solutions to challenges facing Ward 3 and the District.

WASHINGTON, DC –– Councilmember Matt Frumin announced his budget priorities for Fiscal Year 2024 today, which he transmitted in a letter to Mayor Muriel Bowser. The ambitious priorities seek to realize a “Ward 3 for All” by expanding opportunity and growing inclusive neighborhoods. His budget priorities highlight seven critical strategies:

  1. Fully Fund Neighborhood Schools
  2. Promote Affordable, Abundant Housing Options
  3. Expand Economic Opportunity
  4. Invest in Safer Streets and Accessible Transit
  5. Foster Safe, Healthy Neighborhoods
  6. Support our Seniors
  7. Celebrate Local Arts, Culture, and Recreation

“I will use the FY 24 budget process to press for additional funds for public schools in Ward 3 and across the District,” said Councilmember Frumin. “A critical first step will be to reverse the destructive proposed cuts to more than 60 DCPS schools. We must restore crucial school services citywide.”

Councilmember Frumin’s bold budget priorities also include a cumulative investment of more than $56 million in behavioral health supportive services, purchasing the Whittle School site for public use, and establishing a new $100 million fund to support the acquisition of land for housing at all income levels.

“Ward 3 for All is about seeking new opportunities and growth for our community,” Frumin said. “With intentional funding and policy, we can create a more inclusive community for all residents, especially children, families, and seniors.
