Both national and city governments are feeling the pressure to make information available and accessible to the public. While Washington has undertaken initiatives to work towards open government, many cities are struggling with providing services and data to their citizenry at low costs that would benefit and improve the community. Code for America is non-profit organization that is working towards a solution. Recruiting the talent of the web industry, this organization advertises itself as “a new kind of public service helping governments work better for everyone with the people and the power of the web.” Working with government and civic leaders at the local level, Code for America identifies city projects that can benefit from an online solution, focusing on issues like openness, participation, education, and efficiency. Realizing the transformative power of technology, Code for America is bringing the innovation of the web into the politics of cities across the nation to start creating sustainable options for government.
