About the DC Community Resource Inventory (CRI)

The DC Community Resource Inventory (CRI) is a District-wide, publicly available directory that provides information about regional health, human, and social programs and organizations in the community that are available to District residents. As part of the DC Community Resource Information Exchange Initiative (DC CoRIE), the CRI is public information infrastructure operated in the interests of the residents of the District of Columbia and represents directories contributed by District organizations and services offered by members of the DC PACT coalition. Data available in the CRI include information such as organization and program description, location, contact information, service category, and service eligibility, and more. 


The DC CRI is stewarded by the DC Primary Care Association, in partnership with the Open Referral Initiative, with technology developed by Sarapis

Resource Information Management 

Information in the DC CRI is stewarded by designated parties who assume responsibility for its verification and curation. The bulk of verification responsibilities are currently held by the DC Primary Care Association, with support from a network of partner organizations that maintain resource directories in specific subdomains. Collection and verification of this information is an ongoing process – please direct any questions or suggestions about the data available in the CRI to David Poms at dpo[email protected].
