The City of Santa Monica, CA was our first government partner. CityGrows has grown to support counties and municipalities in California, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Illinois, Oregon, Kansas, and Massachusetts. We provide services to governments as large as the City of Los Angeles and as small as Emsworth, PA.

The CityGrows platform team has an extensive background in technology, civic innovation, and startup development. Here's more on our team and open roles.The CityGrows platform has received regional, national and international awards for our technology and work with local governments, and was listed on the 2021 GovTech 100.
