Economic Growth DC is the trade name for the DC Economic Growth Action Fund. We are a non-profit corporation incorporated in the District of Columbia and organized under chapter 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code as a social welfare organization. In order to qualify for non-profit status, a 501(c)(4), must have as its primary purpose activities that promote the common good and general welfare of the population it serves. Economic Growth DC believes that the common good and the general welfare of the residents of the District of Columbia are best served by a robust and dynamic economy. Economic Growth DC intends to facilitate the conditions that create such an economy by engaging primarily in three activities: 1) Advocating before all elements of the government of the District of Columbia on behalf of legislation, regulations, policies, rules and procedures that enhance economic growth; 2) Providing organizational, operational, administrative and financial support to local and neighborhood business associations, business improvement districts, economic development corporations, civic associations and other civic groups dedicated to establishing and maintaining an environment conducive to robust economic growth; and 3) Supporting pro-growth candidates for District of Columbia elective office.

As of this writing on 2/24/2013, we are very much a start-up organization. We are still working on our website and getting our office and other activities set up. As mentioned in our first blog post, our first board meeting will be held Saturday, April 20th at 1:00pm at the Southeast Neighborhood Library right next to the Eastern Market Metro station. It is open to the public. If you have any questions in the meantime, our contact information is below:

Our address is 1130 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 350, Washington, DC 20036
