The Opportunity Project

Use government data to build digital tools with, by, and for the people.

From the Census Open Innovation Labs website:

The Opportunity Project helps companies, non-profits, and universities turn federal open data into new technologies that solve real-world problems for people across the country.

We focus on the nation’s toughest challenges, from the opioid crisis and disaster relief to improving STEM education and strengthening the workforce. To date, 100 consumer-facing digital products have been created, using open data to serve families, businesses and communities nationwide.

Host organization: U.S. Census Bureau
