About Federalist

Federalist is a compliant web publishing service for open source static sites created by the United States federal government. It provides templates for websites and access to cloud-based infrastructure for high-scale hosting along with several other unique features that offer value to our agency partners.

The team at 18F builds and maintains Federalist as a service available to federal government agencies. We also use Federalist to host many of our own websites.
