During the coronavirus crisis, many governments have to act fast and decide as well as enforce policies to save the lives and livelihoods of their citizens. With limited resources, they often are not in the position to hire enough additional staff to handle all necessary tasks effectively.
U.S. Digital Response is a volunteer-run, non-partisan effort to help federal, state, and local governments with technology, data, design, operations, communications, and project management during the Covid-19 crisis. The initiative provides free assistance to all government entities across the country. U.S. Digital Response was founded by former U.S. Deputy CTOs and seasoned tech industry veterans who led federal open data policies and started up the U.S. Digital Service. Already 3,000+ qualified people are supporting governments.
