Civic Tech

Inviting Local Governments & NonProfits to Submit Project Proposals for NDCH 2018!

National Day of Civic Hacking, on August 11, is an annual nationwide event hosted by Code for America that brings together volunteer civic technologists with local government, and community agencies and organizations to work together on 21st century solutions to organizational and government services challenges.

This year, we’re inviting local city and county governments, and area service organizations to to submit project ideas for the event. We’ll select projects that:

  • Have clear objectives including how the project will improve services or support for citizens, and/or can show cost savings to communities;
  • Can provide the necessary APIs and other relevant data and information volunteers will need to create solutions and;
  • Commit an agency “champion” to the project who will work directly with NDCH teams before and at the event to help them provide the solution the agency is looking for.
  • To have your project considered for Code for Tampa Bay’s 2018 National Day of Civic Hacking event(s) – we hope to hold one Hack for Change event in Pinellas and one in Hillsborough – Please complete our NDCH website form by June 22. Selected projects will be announced by July 2

    Introducing the Public Interest Tech Job Board

    The newly developed Public Interest Tech Job Board is a collection of curated opportunities in public interest technology. Code for America believes that people with design, product, analytical, and technical expertise can make a difference in how government works.

    What is public interest tech?

    Public Interest: contributing to the common good. We use this to describe several types of organizations, such as:

    • governments
    • non-profits that partner with governments
    • for-profits that have a strong focus on social impact

    Tech: any skills required to build products and services. This includes, but is not limited to:

    • product and project managers
    • researchers and designers
    • developers
    • analysts
    • content strategists
