Submit your own ideas

Have a great project in mind?
Submit it to our backlog

We're a community-driven organization. We like to solve problems that can benefit many people. This means giving everyone a voice (and a vote) in our process. If you have a civic project that you'd like us to look at, submit it to our backlog and give the community a chance to vote. We pull from the backlog as we finish projects -- ideas with the most votes get worked on first.

Looking for a place to jump in? These might be a good place to start.

Code for America Brigade

Want To Help Your City? Good, we could use your help.

We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.

What is civic hacking?

Creating technology that increases civic engagement, building tools for governments to share information, and for citizens to hold governments accountable. Solving problems with code.
