The congressionally-mandated sequestration could take about $60 million of income and sales tax revenue from the District of Columbia's economy and cause the city to lose about $30 million in federal grants and payments in fiscal 2014, district officials said Tuesday.

The cuts would include $11 million to the District of Columbia Housing Authority and $6.3 million to the Office of the State Superintendent of Education. The cuts could lead to 200 to 250 fewer housing vouchers for families and reduced grants to public schools for special education, free and reduced-price lunches and early-childhood education, officials said.
