DC feeling effects of the sequester

Posted: Updated:

The District is beginning to feel the effects of the sequester.

A new financial report predicts a $60 million loss in revenue next year.

That includes $6.3 million to education and $11 million to the D.C. Housing Authority.

As a result, housing vouchers will be cut and there will fewer education grants.

But the District has rolled out a five year economic development strategy and expects 71,000 jobs to be created or filled by 2017.

The program will also provide job training and creation in technology, hospitality and the medical field.
