1. Learn about this resource. 

Renters or property owners can get financial assistance for a security camera system. We—DC Government—offer a rebate after you pay for and install a security camera system on the exterior of a property in DC. The rebate covers the cost of the cameras, up to $200 each. You can receive a rebate for more than one camera, for a total rebate of up to $500 for residential properties, such as houses, townhouses, and apartment buildings, and up to $750 for non-residential properties, such as businesses, nonprofits, and religious institutions.

 

This program is called the Private Security Camera Rebate Program and is offered by the Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants.

2. Check if you are eligible.

You are eligible if all of these statements are true:

  • You rent or own a property in DC. (You can live outside DC, as long as the property you’re applying for is in DC. The property could be a residential property, business, nonprofit, or religious institution.)

  • You purchased and installed a security camera system outside the property you rent or own in DC on or after September 22, 2015.

If you do live in DC and receive certain types of public assistance, you may be eligible to receive a free security camera system and installation at your home in DC.
