Welcome to DC Cares


Thank you for your interest in DC CARES 2021, a one-time assistance program ($1000.00 debit card) for eligible DC residents impacted by the pandemic. 

The 2021 program received more applicants than funds available to distribute. All 2021 funds have been distributed to qualifying participants with completed applications. 

We appreciate your patience with the program and recognize the long delay in communication is a source of frustration. 

We expect to distribute additional funding in 2022 to eligible applicants. Information will be posted at www.dccares2021.org when it becomes available. At this time, we are not accepting new applications and we are not able to provide updates on the status of previous applications.
