To summarize, many, but not all, blocks in the city are zoned for RPP. Of those that are not RPP, some are metered and some are “unzoned”.
If your block is not zoned for RPP (use the link provided by anongardener to find out if it is) then your options for parking are a) park in an unzoned block or b) rent or borrow an off-street parking spot.
If your block is not zoned for RPP and you think it should be, there is a process to petition the city for RPP. Check the dc gov website for info about that.
