Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets

In May of 2003, the mayor awarded Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets (HDCMS) a grant from his reStore DC program. The mission of this project is to make Dupont Circle’s commercial corridors economically healthy, improve the quality of life for residents, and reflect the community’s pride and history. The five-year program will be guided by the following goals:

  • Incubate new small businesses that serve the neighborhood;
  • Enhance our sense of community;
  • Increase public safety; and
  • Beautify our parks and commercial corridors.

Four main committees work together to achieve its goals: Organization, Design, Promotion, and Economic Development. For more information or if anyone is interested in helping, contact the Executive Director, Paul Williams, execdirector@dupontcircle.biz or visit the website.


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.
