Making government work for the people

We are a network of people making government work for the people, by the people, in the 21st century. How do we get there? Government services that are simple, effective, and easy to use, working at scale to build healthy, prosperous, and safe communities. Code for America uses the principles and practices of the digital age to improve how government serves the American public, and how the public improves government. *GetCalFresh ( getcalfresh.org ) - Improving how government delivers food assistance to families in need. *ClientComm ( clientcomm.org ) - Keeping people out of jail by connecting them with case managers via text. *ClearMyRecord ( clearmyrecord.codeforamerica.org ) - Giving people a second chance to get jobs and housing by clearing past convictions. *The Integrated Benefits Initiative (codeforamerica.org/services/integrated-benefits) - Making it simple for all Americans to get as many services as they need.
