USA.gov's motto is "Government Made Easy," and this site delivers. As the official Web portal of the government of the United States, USA.gov is designed to be the first place citizens look for government information and services. While other government sites are so loaded with specific information that you might not know where to start, USA.gov brings together the information that citizens most commonly want to find, in a format that is easy to navigate.
The site is organized and presented simply and efficiently. The list of topics for citizens includes benefits and grants, consumer guides, health and nutrition, arts and culture, jobs and education, money and taxes, public safety and law, science and technology, and more.
Each topic takes you to subtopics where you can find detailed information, link to related sites, access online services, and download pdf brochures for easy reference. USA.gov even tailors information to specific audiences. In the section for individual citizens, choose from kids, parents, seniors, military and veterans, Americans abroad, and more.
As much information as there is for citizens, the site provides the same portal-type navigation and information for businesses and nonprofit organizations, government employees, and visitors to the United States. USA.gov highlights relevant government online services, too - helping you conduct your government business from the comfort of your home or office.
