The FCC carefully selects a small number of projects of great importance which can only be achieved through the collaborative efforts of the District’s most committed civic leaders. We choose projects that are barely achievable, but not impossible, and that yield great dividends for the District. We adopt projects that require the coordination of multiple stakeholders and we facilitate collaboration among the private sector, the federal government and the District of Columbia. We rely heavily on the support and expertise of our trustees to bring our projects to fruition.
Previous successes include contributions to the creation of Metro, the renovation of Union Station, the building of the Verizon Center, and the redevelopment of Pennsylvania Avenue. Current projects include sustaining public education reform, increasing infrastructure investment, improving transportation mobility in the District, reducing unemployment through job creation and job readiness, ensuring the District’s fiscal stability and integrity, and supporting the growth of the District’s tourism economy.
