2019 AR0 Statehood Initiatives

Thursday, July 12, 2018

The mission of Statehood Initiatives (SI) is to inform the Congress and individual members of Congress that the District meets the standards traditionally required by Congress for the admission as a state of the United States; to monitor the progress of the petition for admission of the District of Columbia to statehood pending before the Congress and report on the progress to the District residents; and to advise the District on matters of public policy that bear on the achievement of statehood.

The agency may employ staff and expend funds donated by private sources for public purposes related to the achievement of statehood and may carry out any other powers or duties as may be provided by law. The Statehood Initiatives Agency reflects the Mayor’s submission for the New Columbia Statehood Fund, prepared by the Commission, pursuant to the D.C. Code, § 1-129.32 (f), Establishment of the New Columbia Statehood Fund.
