The Office of Communications' digital team is committed to empowering you with tools to help you manage your office's digital content. Managing digital content requires planning, creation, delivery, and governance. Content is more than featuring words, images and documents on a website. We must manage content through its lifecycle so our customers have useful and usable content that is well structured, and easily found. This allows for positive user experiences, and that is the ultimate goal. 

This section of the Digital Toolbox provides ACF's CMS users with guides, tips, and  demos to help you access and use Drupal to create dynamic, customer-friendly content. 

How to Access Drupal

Two-Factor Authentication (TFA), also known as 2FA or 2-Step Verification, strengthens security by requiring two methods to verify your identity.

To login to ACF's Drupal, go to www.acf.hhs.gov/user. Enter your ACF e-mail address and Drupal password.

Reset Your Password

If you forget your password at any time, Go to www.acf.hhs.gov/user , select “Reset Your Password” tab and enter your email address. A new password will be sent to you.

Creating Content

The ACF website uses a series of content types — templates that define how content looks and functions. Each one has it's own requirements and purpose.

Choosing the right content type is important to making sure your information is easily found and understood.

An asset is an uploaded file used to accompany various content types such as resource library items, carousels, etc. Anytime you upload a photo, document, audio file, or PDF, it will be saved to your Assets in the Asset Manager. This enables you to access these items from anywhere on the site without having to reload the asset multiple times. Other users will have access to the same assets, and you will be able to access some assets used on the main site and other program office sites.

Only the following file types are accepted-

  • Images: png, gif, jpg, jpeg
  • Audio: mp3
  • Documents: doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, pdf, csv, txt, rtf, zip, html, htm
