Mobile Friendly Resources

Accessing information using mobile devices is convenient and often the first choice for many people. The Connected Government Act that became law in January 10, 2018 requires Federal websites for the public to be mobile friendly. A good site to begin your search for friendly federal apps and websites is USA.gov's Federal Government Mobile Apps Directory ( https://www.usa.gov/mobile-apps ) which offers a listing of agencies that provide official government information for your smartphone or tablet.
