Advisory Neighborhood Commissions

About Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs)

ANCS are bodies of local government in Washington, D.C. Created in 1974, ANCs consider a wide range of policies from traffic and parking to police protection and D.C.’s annual budget. ANC’s are led by a commissioner that serves two-year terms and do not receive a salary.ANCs can help you become a representative of your neighborhood community to the various government agencies, the Mayor, and DC Council. You become the voice of your community. Being involved in your ANC, either as a commissioner or just attending meetings, gives you the opportunity to become more directly involved in local government.
