How do I create an FPF profile for my position as a government official?

Add a new profile or create a new account for use in your capacity as a government official.

If you'd like to use your existing account for postings related to your government position, create a new profile on that account. To do so, log in to your account and then:

  • Click your name in the upper right corner of the screen to visit the My Account page.
  • Scroll down and click the green button that says "Request Government Profile."
  • Fill in the form and click "Find my neighborhood." 
  • Under the map of your area, click "Submit."
  • Your profile will be reviewed within 48 hours and you'll receive email notification once it is approved.

If you'd like to use a separate email address for postings related to your government position, create a new account using that email address. To do so:

    • Go to https://frontporchforum.com/ and click Logout if that's an option.
    • Fill in your address (or the address of the relevant office) and click Sign up.
    • Enter your name, choose "Government (free)" for Profile Plan, and complete the form. Click "Create your Account."
    • Your profile will be reviewed within 48 hours and you'll receive email notification once it is approved.
