Council President Kail-Smith’s district saw $43,225,339 in total public investment (7th out of all the districts), all of which came from the URA (hers was the only council district to receive no PHFA or HACP funds). But combined with private investment, President Kail-Smith’s district ranked 6th in total public and private investment, 96.1% derived from banks.  Just 3.9% of total investment came from public sources.  Bank investment of $55 million in Councilwoman Kail-Smith’s two combined minority communities of Sheraden and Esplen was significantly larger than the public investment of $3 million in these neighborhoods.
