What we're about

Code for DC is the DC Chapter of the Code for America Brigades. We bring together community members and subject matter experts with data enthusiasts and techies to help make a better DC for all of its residents.

A few examples: we’ve partnered with non-profits to build a client intake system and create a comprehensive database of affordable housing data. We work with the city to control the rat problem and connect case workers to the right programs for their clients. We open data and help solve city issues.

Come help us build more!
