1998 Grant to Shiloh for 1533 9th Street, NW
According to a December 10, 1999 Washington City Paper article, Shiloh "scored a $340,000 grant from D.C.'s Department of Housing and Community Development to pay for part of the makeover of a pink-brick house at 1533 9th Street into Jammin' Java--a coffeehouse that will target youth through special programs." A WaPo editorial from 2002 states that, although the coffeehouse was never built, the funds were never repaid. Does anyone know the story behind these funds and if they were indeed repaid?
