U.S. Government Websites Impacted By the Federal Government Shutdown

As of October 1, 2013, the federal government is experiencing a partial shutdown. Due to this shutdown, a number of useful government websites will be unavailable entirely until the shutdown ends.

The following sites are no longer available, as of this writing. This list may not be complete:

A large number of government sites are still up and running, but are displaying the following message:

“Due to the lapse in government funding, only web sites supporting excepted functions will be updated unless otherwise funded. As a result, the information on this website may not be up to date, the transactions submitted via the website may not be processed, and the agency may not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted.”

The following sites are not currently being regularly updated. If the government shutdown continues for a prolonged amount of time, the following websites (among others) could eventually contain outdated information. This list is not complete.

Keep in mind that the government shutdown only affects FEDERAL (United States) government websites. All state websites, including North Carolina sites, are not directly impacted by the shutdown.

For updates regarding government operating status and resumption of normal operations check out http://www.usa.gov.
