Barry Farm: Updates

Barry Farm Master Planning Begins with Community Meeting

The Barry Farm development team is led by Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) and A&R Companies.  POAH and A&R are working with the residents, DC Housing Authority and the District to update the 2006 Revitalization Plan and development of the Choice Neighborhood Transformation Plan.

Barry Farm Master Planning Community Stakeholder Choice Neighborhoods Steering Committee Kickoff

The DC Housing Authority and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development invited community stakeholders and residents to participate on the Barry Farm Choice Neighborhoods Steering Committee and three subcommittees including Housing, Neighborhood and People.  To assist with the District’s and DCHA’s mission to revitalize Barry Farm, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the DC Housing Authority a Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant for Barry Farm. The Choice Planning Grant will serve as a tool to help achieve the goals towards the Barry Farm redevelopment. Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grants support the development of comprehensive neighborhood revitalization plans which focus on directing resources to address three core goals: Housing, People and Neighborhoods.

The Choice Neighborhood Planning Grant for Barry Farm provides resources to support the revitalization plan.  As the recipient of the Choice Planning Grant, DCHA is engaging residents and community stakeholders in a planning process that includes the creation of a Steering Committee and three sub-committees to address the People, Housing and Neighborhood.  Residents and community stakeholders are encouraged to participate in the planning process.  For more information on the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative or to get involved with a committee, please contact Janice Burgess, DCHA Deputy Director for Planning at
