Stuff we've made

Code for DC creates tools, information, and experiences that serve the District.
We kick off new projects every month. Browse the complete list, then get started.


ANC Finder

A project to explain DC's hyperlocal Advisory Neighborhood Commission system by pulling information scattered across the web into one place. ANCs make decisions that shape neighborhoods, but reliable information about them is hard to find. We aim to change that.

Open Schools

Choosing a school in DC can be confusing and we hope to support family decisions with data. We recognize that the "right" school for your children can be evaluated not just by standardized test scores, but by teacher turnover, parent involvement, special programming, community and more. We have built this tool starting with school populations by neighborhood, and gradually plan to add information we collect from the city, from NGOs, the private sector, and you!
