As a dilapidated and vagrant used school building, the Old Congress Heights school stood vacant for nearly thirty years. The CDC collaborated with a partner developer to compete for the recently DCPS- surplussed property, coordinated “envelop” ﬁnancing of $4 Million dollars, and ultimately used tax credit dollars to create state of the art elementary school that now houses Imaging Public Charter School. The next phase of the $25 Million dollar project will be a junior high school at the same site.
