Welcome to The DC Property and Building Permit Center!
The DC Property & Permit Center is a one stop shop for all things permits. The portal provides a range of online tools to apply for building permits, request city services, research property regulatory information, and research and analyze permit data. Residents are able to download datasets and generate custom reports. Property owners can now register their apartment complex(s). Coming soon, the new and improved PIVS 2.0 will be part of the portal.
Take some time to check out DCRA’s new tools on the Property & Permit Center Portal:
- DCRA Dashboards is a tool that graphically displays DCRA permits, business and professional licenses, enforcement, and inspections data. The dashboards provide greater transparency, allowing customers to (view or observe) DCRA’s performance.
- DCRA Data Connect allows DC residents to access information about permits issued, illegal construction, and vacant building data. Data can be viewed via csv files and maps.
- Permit Application Q-Tracker gives DC residents the option to track their permit applications and monitor the placement of their application in queue for each review associated with it. Depending on the permit application type, you will be able to check your placement in the queue of over thirty (30) different review types – allowing you to Skip the Trip to DCRA.
