Code for America announces 2014 government partners


Written by

Code for America on Friday selected 10 local governments for its 2014 program, pooling from more than 50 applicants on a list that includes cities from California to Puerto Rico.

The selected cities will be paired with teams of civic-minded technologies for a year of service that will help them solve challenges with technology such as building apps, inspiring citizen engagement and increasing capacity for city staff.

Past apps have addressed economic development, health care, criminal justice, citizen engagement, transportation and more.

The selected cities are: Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Denver; Lexington, Ken.; Long Beach, Calif.; Mesa, Ariz.; the State of Rhode Island in partnership with the City of Warwick, R.I.; San Antonio, Texas; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Over the past three years, the program has produced more than 75 Web apps in collaboration with 20 municipal governments.

Learn more about the government partners, along with the 31 fellows selected as well.
