Florida E-Government Projects

 Right Service at the Right Time

This is a one-stop service to help those seeking and applying for various forms of public assistance. The site features an easy to use discovery engine that can be implemented in any community to match customers with specific resources to meet their needs.


 Get Help Florida
The statewide Web portal provides access to hundreds of E-Government resources, organized by category, enabling users to quickly and easily locate agencies that can assist them.

 Project Compass Florida
This is a Florida-specific website that supports the workforce recovery efforts of public libraries by helping library staff increase their knowledge of available resources and handle the service needs of unemployed and job-seeking patrons.
