About ClearGov:

Making Democracy Work Better

Our story

We live in a transparent world. The internet has put the whole wide world of information literally at everyone’s fingertips. It has also changed our expectations regarding the accessibility of information – we want it to be current; we want it to make sense; and we want it now!

Through a variety of Open Data Initiatives, the government sector has made significant strides over the last decade with respect to transparency. There is a ton of information out there, but transparency is not the same as clarity. In other words, if you publish a given data set on the Web and make it publicly available, you can check the transparency box. But, if the data doesn’t make sense to the average citizen, you aren’t communicating in a way that delivers value and drives understanding.

ClearGov was launched in June of 2015 with two goals in mind:

  • For starters, we want to help the average American citizen understand how their local tax dollars are spent within their communities while providing meaningful context as to how those expenditures compare to peer communities.
  • In parallel, we aim to help local municipalities – towns, cities, school districts, etc. – operate and communicate more efficiently and effectively by delivering unique fiscal insights through our turnkey financial transparency and benchmarking platform.
Town Meeting

ClearGov already works with hundreds of local governments from large cities to small school districts to help them communicate, connect and engage with their constituents to build community support for mission-critical projects. The ClearGov platform also enables civic officials to make informed, fact-based decisions about budgets, hiring, economic development and more.

We are building a network of forward-thinking government officials and communities who share a vision of data-driven government that can positively impact millions of lives. Quite simply, we are making democracy work better.
