HUD's Next Door Kiosks Are a Hit
A Hammer Award-winning team at the Department of Housing and Urban Development created locally-customized electronic kiosks in communities nationwide to allow citizens access to basic housing information, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Using the kiosk, residents can find out if affordable rental housing is available, learn how to file a housing discrimination complaint, get home buying information, and find out how to get an FHA refund. HUD's Next Door Kiosks Project is in the running for the 1999 Innovations in American Government Award.

The Environmental Protection Agency's Envirofacts warehouse can tell you that and a lot more: By plugging in a ZIP code at the EPA's site, you can get information not only on drinking water, but also on Superfund sites, air pollution, toxic releases, hazardous waste and water discharge permits. EPA has the number three spot on PC Week Online's top 100 Websites in Government and Education.
