The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District is an award-winning non-profit 501(c)(6) corporation that works to enhance the Golden Triangle — the 43-square-block neighborhood that stretches from Dupont Circle to Pennsylvania Avenue. The primary focus of the BID is to provide a clean, safe, and vibrant environment within this remarkable neighborhood, and to retain and attract businesses to the Golden Triangle.
Founded in 1997, the Golden Triangle BID encourages economic development through capital improvement projects, a variety of engaging events, and public art projects. The BID also strives to increase quality of life through public safety and maintenance services. The BID is funded by a special tax that is paid by property owners within the neighborhood. The Golden Triangle BID’s operating budget for FY2019 is $5,663,275 and can be divided as follows: $2,541,268 for Ambassador and Safe and Secure Programs; $694,492 for Public Realm; $1,122,482 for Research/Economic Development/Marketing/Events; and $1,305,033 for Administration and Professional Services.
The BID connects its members to numerous resources, events, and information in and around the neighborhood. The staff serve as a first point of contact for member questions and issues and act as a key liaison between businesses and many city agencies. Together with corporate and government partners, the BID develops and implements programs that strengthen the vitality of the Golden Triangle. The BID is dedicated to making the Golden Triangle a great place to live, work, and play.
