About ANCs

What is an ANC? 

Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) are groups of volunteer, non-partisan elected officials--called Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners--that each represent roughly 2,000 DC residents. 

ANCs advise the DC government on certain municipal matters that impact their local community such zoning, transportation, sanitation, and public safety. DC agencies are legally required to give “great weight” to ANC opinion. 

Commissioners serve as volunteers without pay and represent their single-member districts for two-year terms.
