Destination Congress Heights Main Street (DCHMS) formerly the Congress Heights Main Street was chartered by the National Trust for Historic Preservations Main Street program in January of 2016. Our Main Street program operates under the Congress Heights Community Training and Development Corporation (CHCTDC) as a result of the DC Main Street initiative which was established through the National Trust for Historic Preservations. CHCTDC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization led by a combination of community development professionals and local volunteers. Although established under CHCTDC, DCHMS has separate Board of Directors who governs the operations of the program. The full Board meets quarterly to review the business of the organization. The committees also meet regularly to discuss the progress of their projects. The day-to-day activities of DCHMS are carried out through its committees, made up of active volunteers from all walks of life. The DCHMS board and committee activities are supported by the Executive Director, who keeps all the parts moving forward.
