Two Neighborhood Beautification Events

Brake for Sunflowers 
T Street Parks and Garden Clean Up

Saturday April 16, 9am - noon

Last year's florabundant plantings of pollinator attractors like sunflowers and milkweed, at the T Street Parks, need to be tidied up. Spring rains have been great for our trees, but likewise for weeds!  Join the DCCA Parks crew on Saturday April 16, from 9am to noon, for light gardening and neighborhood chitchat. Please bring your own gloves, hat, and sunscreen as needed. Rakes and whatnot will be provided. 

Meet at the white benches in the people park north of the dog park (the triangle between 17th, T & New Hampshire). 

Questions? Contact info@dupont-circle.org

Mulch Ado
Northeast Dupont Spruce Up

Saturday April 23, 9am - noon

ANC Commissioners Nicole Mann and Noah Smith joined forces with DCCA, Councilmember Jack Evans' Office and other local partners for a general spruce up. There will be spreading of mulch on tree boxes and ferreting out of trash wherever it may hide. Great fun for one and all. Please join us for some heavy lifting or delicate picking. Your choice!  Bring gloves, hat and sunscreen as needed. Mulch and trashbags will be provided. 

Meet at the white benches in the people park north of the dog park (the triangle between 17th, T & New Hampshire).

Fight Graffiti Vandalism and Keep our Dupont Neighborhood Beautiful

Graffiti vandalism is a major problem in our Dupont neighborhood and the District of Columbia. If not removed, graffiti is a visual blight; reduces property values; increases criminal activity and gives the impression to residents, businesses and visitors that we do not care about our neighborhood.  Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA) is committed to maintaining and improving the quality of life for everyone in our neighborhood.  The best way to fight graffiti vandalism is prompt removal and, if needed, continual prompt removal. 

The DC government will remove or paint over graffiti vandalism on public space or private property.  Simply call 311 and provide a specific address.  To clean private property, the building owner’s permission is required before cleaning.  311 can provide the required private property permission formThe signed form must be faxed to (202) 645-5392.

Graffiti includes paint, gummed labels and pasted paper.

If you have any questions or want experienced graffiti fighting neighbors to help remove or paint over graffiti vandalism or want to help DCCA fight this neighborhood blight, please call Phil Carney at 202-462-2776.

Volunteers Needed to Maintain Neighborhood Parks

Supporting Our Community

DCCA Community Grant Applications
DCCA makes grants from funds raised by the annual House Tour for the activities and projects of local organizations that further DCCA’s mission. Examples of recent DCCA grants include those to neighborhood organizations that serve individuals who are homeless or have mental illness, such as Charlie’s Place and Green Door, grants for programs and events to Dupont Circle Village and Dupont Festival, and a grant to the Ross Elementary School PTA for playground equipment.
DCCA’s Community Grants Policy and Grant Application Form are now available on the DCCA website. Applications for grants to support an organization’s ongoing activities are due by December 1st for consideration for funding at the Board of Director’s meeting in January.  Organizations may also submit grant applications for one-time events or needs throughout the year. The Board will act on such applications on a rolling basis, with decisions typically provided within two months.

Founded in 1922 in a townhouse at 1767 P Street, to promote and protect the interests of the residents, the Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA) is the premier civic and residential organization in the Dupont Circle area.

DCCA brings neighbors, including residents, businesses and non-profit organizations, together to improve the quality of life in an active and diverse urban neighborhood. It holds membership meetings 9 times each year, which are open to the public, runs the Dupont Circle House Tour, resolves neighborhood issues through its committees, donates to local causes, and incubates innovative projects.
