Expanding Your Benefits Connection, GovBenefits.gov Second Anniversary April 29, 2004
GovBenefits.gov is expanding your benefits connection! As the two-year anniversary of the award-winning GovBenefits.gov website is celebrated, we are pleased to announce that the site is expanding to better serve you. The new GovBenefits.gov includes Spanish-language content with the debut of GovBenefits.gov En Espaol and additional State program information. The new GovBenefits.gov site was redesigned to make it easier for you to find the government benefit and assistance programs that meet your specific needs. In addition to all citizen-focused Federal benefit programs, GovBenefits.gov contains benefit program information from all 50 U.S. States, helping citizens across the country save time and avoid the hassle of trying to figure out which government agency to contact for assistance.

The expansion of GovBenefits.gov increases the ability of the site to help citizens learn more about the government benefit and assistance programs that may be available to them. GovBenefits.gov En Espaol offers Spanish-speaking communities even greater access to Federal and State benefit programs, while the expanded State benefit information gives citizens additional avenues to locate State-level assistance programs.

Since its launch in April 2002, GovBenefits.gov has provided more than 10 million visitors with information on government benefit and assistance programs, and generated nearly 1.7 million citizen referrals to benefit programs. GovBenefits.gov contains information on more than 500 Federal and State benefit and assistance programs.
