The Department of State serves the American people by executing the Administration’s foreign policy priorities, advancing U.S. national security, promoting our economic interests, providing passport and visa services, and reaffirming our country’s exceptional role in the world -- and all for a very small amount of the Federal budget.

Serving the American People: A State By State Look

The Office of Public Engagement created the “State by State map” to help Americans understand the benefits of State Department programs and services to U.S. taxpayers. Each day, our employees make a difference as they contribute to our society, and defend and advance our country’s interests and values -- the map represents just some of the direct impacts State Department programs have in American communities.

A tropical vacation may sound like the perfect getaway this summer, but it comes with a risk: the Atlantic hurricane season. The Atlantic hurricane season officially lasts from June 1 to November 30, though most tropical hurricanes develop between May and October. Storms towards the latter part of the season do tend to be bigger and stronger. You can still have a great vacation during these months, but you need to be prepared.
