Congressional Cemetery Government Lots – National Cemetery Administration

Established in 1807, Congressional Cemetery is located in the southeast quadrant of Washington, D.C., overlooking the Anacostia River. The National Cemetery Administration has jurisdiction over 806 burial plots located throughout the larger cemetery, including some of the oldest and most significant historic resources maintained by the agency.

The original 4.5 acres of Congressional Cemetery was purchased by a group of Washingtonians for a private burial ground. On July 19, 1807, Uriah Tracy of Connecticut became the first congressman buried in the cemetery. In 1812 the group deeded the cemetery to Christ Church as The Washington Parish Burial Ground. Five years later, Christ Church set aside 100 burial lots for members of Congress who died in Washington.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration has requested an additional $45.8 billion from Congress to shore up U.S. agencies amid the fast-spreading coronavirus outbreak, a White House spokesman said on Wednesday.

The supplemental funding request, sent to U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday night, would give billions more to the Department of Health and Human Services, the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Defense Department.

The request is separate from the administration’s proposed $1 trillion stimulus package to address the outbreak’s economic fallout.

The request includes a proposal for $13.1 billion for the VA to fund treatment of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, and other related costs. The administration is requesting another $1.3 billion for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over its prior proposal.
