Internet infrastructure of government social programs
Forage is the internet infrastructure for government social programs – the Stripe for government-funded payments. Government distributes $3.7T worth of social benefit programs through specialized payment networks every year. We want to give the internet access to that spend through a unified API. Our first product offering helps online grocery stores accept payments from the existing $160B/year grocery subsidy (called SNAP / EBT) which >42M Americans rely on.
