At Code for America, we have always believed that government must work for the people, by the people, in the digital age.

In the midst of a national (and global) pandemic—with schools closing, families in need of food and childcare, and people unable to access a government office for critical benefits—the stakes of government working for those who need it most have never been higher.

Code for America is positioned to provide immediate assistance to both people and governments in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. This page will highlight our response efforts to help people through this crisis.
