Progressive Web Apps (PWA) are an approach to web apps that use modern capabilities to deliver app-like experiences. In other words, they bring the best of both mobile sites *and* native applications to users. They're reliable, they work even when offline, they're secure, they're engaging, they're cheaper and simpler to build, and they're easier to use. Literally everyone wins.

PWAs will be the easiest way to deliver high-quality digital services for all types of audiences -- to mobile phone users at the last mile of connectivity filling out surveys to project staff updating progress in the field to program staff monitoring targets on a spotty WiFi connection in downtown Washington, D.C.

You can get started now -- PWAs can help you in your everyday tasks, whether you need to take notes in the browser, or record a voice memo (remember that they work offline!). We pushing our tech teams and partners to build PWAs, we will improve the value and ease of digital services for everyone.
