WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- A D.C. community initiative recently received a major infusion from the U.S. Department of Education.

A historic $25 million grant is expected to transform education and healthcare for not just kids, but their parents.

Ayris Scales from DC Promise Initiative applied for the grant for the Ward 7 Kenilworth-Parkside Community. She joined us on Wednesday morning with Vicki Nelson-Joiner, a mother and someone who got a job out of the program.

See our interview with them above.
