The Dupont Circle Citizens Association will hold its 49th Annual House Tour on 

Sunday, October 16 from 12 PM to 5 PM. 

The House Tour is DCCA’s major fund-raising event. Proceeds go to neighborhood activities and charitable institutions benefiting the entire Dupont Circle community, such as: Charlie’s Place, Dupont Circle Village, Dupont Festival, Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets (Clean Teams), Stead Park, the Whitman Walker Clinic, and the 17th Street Festival. 




Honoring a Hero

DCCA Board member Lance Salonia (right, center) joined Dupont Circle neighbors Kishan Putta and Mary Lord (left) at Arlington National Cemetery to pay tribute to U.S. Army Capt. Humayan Khan, a Moslem American who paid the ultimate price for our country's freedom. 

The August 7 show of solidarity, which drew a diverse group of two dozen Washingtonians, was organized by former ANC Commissioner Putta and included leaving notes, flowers, and a copy of the U.S. Constitution that

Capt. Khan and so many others have fought and died to defend.

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.

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.
