Brigade Captains

Captains lead local volunteer groups that work closely with their city halls to open data, create and redeploy civic apps, and support good technology decisions. These organizers are true heroes of the civic tech movement.


Fellows are professionals from the software development, design, research, and urban planning fields who spend a year with us working intensively with a US city. They gain an in-depth understanding of local government and forge deep relationships with their city partners. Most continue civic hacking after the year is over.

Entrepreneurs / Civic Startup Founders

Entrepreneurs are changing government by developing a robust ecosystem of best-in-class software for the civic market. These men and women take on enormous risk, staking their futures on civic enterprises, and Code for America supports them through our Accelerator and Incubator programs.
