I've been sent a copy of a letter written on behalf on ANC 6C to the Office of the Deputy Major for Planning & Economic Development. According to this letter, Oliver Opticians LLC should have been ineligible to receive this grant because they are neither the owners of 331 H Street NE, nor have they signed a lease for that location (the landlord leased 331 H Street to a different tenant).
