About Us

Pricey newsletters and insider websites about the federal government abound for specialists, but GIMBY (Government in My Backyard) is designed to work for you.  After all, your life intersects with the federal government on a daily basis, whether it's a small business loan, or Medicare, or HeadStart, or the new healthcare law. GIMBY shows how government affects your life with news and information about what federal agencies are up to right in your backyard.

GIMBY provides easy-to-use, one-screen profiles of scores of federal agencies and the issues they're charged with handling. We localize news about federal agencies through original reporting, blogging, and news aggregation.

Non-partisan, non-ideological, and working without a dollar of government support, GIMBY aims to change the national conversation about government in America for the better.  We're about problem-solving (instead of finger-pointing) in the face of the significant challenges America faces today.
