Code for America


Our mission

How we intend to make our vision real

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.

  1. To inspire change
    To inspire public servants, people from the tech sector, and community organizers to create change by proving government can do better and showing others how.
  2. To make change real
    Providing government with access to the resources and digital talent they need so that together we can meaningfully impact some of the world’s toughest societal challenges.
  3. To make change stick
    Connecting and convening people from inside and outside government, and from all over the world to inspire each other, share successes, learn, build, and shape a new culture of public service for the 21st century.

To do it all at scale, serving those who need it most.
