ClearForms, a ClearGov platform, is a low-cost permitting and licensing software for local governments. Governments choose ClearForms because it's cost-effective, fast to set up, increases self-sufficiency, and streamlines permitting.

Local governments digitize and automate their workflows from start to finish, and improve operational efficiency, transparency, and compliance. The ClearForms platform allows any government employee – regardless of technical skill – to structure and improve their workflows by collecting information from the public, automating constituent communications, processing online payments, and managing everything through our smart dashboard.

CityGrows (now ClearForms) was incorporated in 2015 with a mission to transform and improve government. CityGrows began providing digital permitting and licensing for governments in 2016. The City of Santa Monica, CA was its first government partner. CityGrows grew to support counties and municipalities in 14 states including California, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Illinois, Oregon, Kansas, and Massachusetts. It provided services to governments as large as the City of Los Angeles and as small as Emsworth, PA. CityGrows was founded by Stephen Corwin and Catherine Geanuracos.
The CityGrows platform team has an extensive background in technology, civic innovation, and startup development. The team continues to build and support the technology as part of ClearGov. The CityGrows platform received regional, national and international awards for our technology and work with local governments, and was listed on the 2021 and 2022 GovTech100.
In June of 2022, ClearGov, a leading local government budgeting platform, acquired the CityGrows platform.
