The About Us page is intended to explain why your agency exists. All agencies exist to provide a service to Georgia citizens or some constituent subset of that population. The About Us page is required to include:

  • a primary location
  • a primary contact (for Schema.org and search engine optimization).
  • Including a list of the services that your agency provides is recommended.

This page is designed to be consistent across all agencies so users can find similar information on every site. Only administrators can set an Organization as the agency's Primary Organization. If you would like to change this association, please open a Support Request. 

The body section can contain more robust explanations of services provided as preferred by each agency.

How to Edit the 'About Us' Page

Overview

Your agency's 'About Us' page is created using the content from your agency's Primary Organization (Content type). This page is designed to be consistent across all agencies so users can find similar information on every site. The information on this page will be shared on Georgia.gov so users searching for government services and information can find the same information in a centralized location.  Note that only administrators can set an Organization as the agency's Primary Organization. If you would like to change this association, please open a Support Request. 

Editing the 'About Us' Page

  • Log into your agency website.
  • Navigate to your agency's 'About Us' page.
  • Click Edit at the top of the page.
  • Edit the content as needed.
  • Select your moderation state – Draft, Needs Review, Archived, Published.

Note

Note: You cannot locate the Organization page by searching for it on the back-end in the content library. This is a safety measure to ensure it's not accidentally deleted or moved to Trash.
