Introducing CivicPress: an advanced WordPress theme optimized for government projects.

What is CivicPress?

CivicPress helps streamline web modernization projects, ensuring government agencies can deliver an outstanding digital experience to the public.

Today, many government agencies are striving to modernize their websites in accordance with federal guidelines like the 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act (IDEA) and OMB’s M-23-22, which promote new levels of privacy, accessibility, and interactivity for government websites.

To support these efforts, we’re thrilled to be collaborating with Lone Rock Point to introduce CivicPress—an advanced WordPress theme custom built to meet the unique needs and requirements of government websites.
