Resources.data.gov has replaced Project Open Data.
On January 14, 2019, the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act ("Evidence Act"), which includes the OPEN Government Data Act, was signed into law. The Evidence Act requires the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Government Information Services, and the General Services Administration to develop and maintain an online repository (Resources.data.gov) of tools, best practices, and schema standards to facilitate the adoption of open data practices across the Federal Government.
Public engagement is key to meaningful open data implementation and a tenant of the Federal Open Data Policy. Whether you are hosting or participating in a Data Jam, Datapalooza, Hackathon or other event (such as panels or conferences), if it is relevant to government data it should be posted and discoverable on Data.gov. Below are step-by-step instructions detailing how federal employees can post open data community events on Data.gov.
If you’ve posted a blogpost on Data.gov you should already have one of these!
If you need help at anytime or a non-federal employee who would like an event posted: email email@example.com for assistance.
