Public Services and the Environment Committee

ANC1C has three Committees to help assess matters that are brought before the Commission. The Public Services and the Environment Committee has jurisdiction over matters such as parks, schools, non-profit organizations, and ANC grants.  One of the key roles of the Public Services and the Environment Committee is to recommend grants of up to $1,000 per year to nonprofit organizations that serve the Adams Morgan Community.  Instructions for applying for a grant and information on grants that were previously awarded by ANC 1C can be found by clicking here.  Matters that are currently under review by the Committee and  matters that were previously addressed by the Committee can be found by clicking here.

If you would like ANC1C to consider a matter for which the Public Services and the Environment Committee has jurisdiction, please provide all relevant materials to the Chair of the Public Services and the Environment Committee at least three weeks prior to the date of the Committee meeting at which you would like the matter to be considered.  Any recommendations made by the Public Services and the Environment Committee with respect to your matter would typically then be scheduled for deliberation and voting by the full Commission at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the full Commission.
