We’re showing what’s possible

Government can and should work well for everyone. This year, we helped millions of people apply for food benefits, access flexible cash, and clear eligible criminal records. When we deploy human-centered technology, we reduce poverty, advance equity, and improve public services.

Your gifts this holiday season will help us continue our work to transform the relationship between government and the people it serves.

The Emily Benatar Foundation has generously agreed to match all donations up to $15,000 total through December 31!

We’re building a human-centered safety net to transform lives in positive, measurable ways—making our systems and society more equitable and resilient.

This year, we helped more than 2.8 million people apply for food assistance and embarked on one of our most ambitious projects to address poverty and advance equity: a partnership initiative with 15 states to deliver $30 billion in safety net benefits to 13 million people.

We supported Colorado, Rhode Island, and Oklahoma in pursuing automatic record clearance laws and supported implementation of automatic record clearance laws in Utah that will bring relief to more than 500,000 people.
