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.
