NC Cities with Code for America Brigades
Check out the brigade websites to see all of the cool projects that are being worked on. The best thing is that the projects are all open source and open data so they can be reused in other cities or expanded to regional efforts.
What is Code for America?
Code for America is a 501(c)3 non-profit that envisions a government by the people, for the people, that works in the 21st century.
Our programs change how we participate in government by:
- connecting citizens and governments to design better services,
- encouraging low-risk settings for innovation; and,
- supporting a competitive civic tech marketplace.
What is a Code for America Brigade?
