The Why: Our styleguide describes why we present information the way we do. We also have specific guidelines that we think make our approach to navigating the social safety net the most user-friendly and helpful that we’ve seen.


The Who and What: Our taxonomy describes the meta content we add to ensure that our social service data is easy to find and provides instant eligibility and relevance information.


The How: Our API and its specification provide a specific medium and format for distribution of social service information. We detail our data models and provide a way for anyone to access our data for free.
