The Washington Post published a story yesterday about how much money the District stands to gain ($1 billion in a recent version) from the federal stimulus package:

“Council members are considering what to do with the money. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D) wants to use any savings to restore cuts in the District’s affordable housing program that were made in November. But he realizes that plans could change because the Senate has not yet approved Obama’s stimulus plan. The council has scheduled a public round table on the stimulus package Feb. 11, pending its approval by Congress. The District is struggling to meet its $5.4 billion budget for fiscal 2010, council members said.”
