Code for America - Breaking Down Barriers and Finding Solutions

Code for America believes government must work for the people, and by the people, in the digital age, starting with the people who need it most. We build digital services that enhance government capabilities, and we help others do the same across all levels of government. Our goal: a 21st-century government that effectively and equitably serves all Americans.
