3 Easy Ways to Introduce the Open Impact Movement to Your Government




As a citizen, you have the power to inspire positive change in your local government. The Open Impact movement is a new approach to governing that empowers public servants to make a bigger impact, resulting in better outcomes for communities. This growing movement is led by forward-thinking government leaders and informed citizens across the country.

How does Open Impact work?

Open Impact uses open technology platforms, a modern approach to budgeting and a focus on performance to enable governments to move faster and make better decisions. This results in tax dollars spent where they generate the greatest impact.

What is OpenGov's role?

OpenGov empowers governments that want to join the Open Impact movement by providing the technology to adopt an Open Impact approach.
