Standing on the shoulders of 🇺🇸

A special thanks to the teams at GSA/18F for their open and transparent model, which benefits citizens, government, and technology.

This application is optimized for deployment on 18F's Federalist static site hosting service.

We use the U.S. Web Design System, a set of reusable, high quality components for modern websites. Many other U.S. government websites use the System.
