“Today, we are pleased to introduce the DCRA Permit Wizard, a new customer-friendly application that modernizes the way our customers start their residential building projects. It’s intuitive, simple and easy to use.
Using a wizard-based approach, customers are guided through a series of questions. In response, the Permit Wizard will:
Identify the permits needed for the entire project – customers no longer have to know permit types in advance;
Advise the customer of the estimated total cost of permits;
Inform the customer of anticipated plan reviews by DCRA and sister agencies, required documentation, anticipated inspections; and
Provide useful advisories and notifications about their property.
Overall, the Permit Wizard is faster, easier, more efficient and available online at our customers’ convenience.
How to Apply for a Residential Permit:
Select DCRA Permit Wizard on dcra.dc.gov and use your single
sign-on, Access DC, to log in efficiently and securely;
Name the project, identify the professionals associated with the project, enter the project details; and
Submit the application.
In short, navigating DCRA’s permitting process just got a whole lot easier.
Beginning today, use the Permit Wizard for all new residential building permit applications.
We are working hard to make the application even stronger. In the future, we will improve the robust functionality of the Permit Wizard, adding permit extensions, trade, demolition, raze, solar, and after-hours permits. For now, these will continue to be handled through the Citizen Access Portal along with commercial applications.
As always, we want to hear from you. If you have feedback about the Permit Wizard, please email us at [email protected].”

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
