Get Help Making Sense of Stimulus Data
Lately, we’ve made it part of our mission to help other reporters pull stories together. Whether it’s our Reporting Recipe, which gives tips on investigating state licensing agencies, or our Reporting Matchmaker, which pairs reporters with homeowners in loan mod limbo, we’re doing what we can to make it easier for you to produce investigations.
Later this week, ProPublica is going to team up with the Associated Press Managing Editors and the Sunlight Foundation for online Webinars to share some tools and tips for getting stimulus data for your community. Making sense of the thousands of stimulus reports from hundreds of federal agencies can be challenging, so these Webinars will help you navigate the terrain of the Recovery Act.
These one-hour sessions are Thursday, April 8, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., and Friday, April 9, at 9 a.m. and noon. All times are Eastern. Jennifer LaFleur of ProPublica and Bill Allison of the Sunlight Foundation will host the Webinars. For more information or to sign up for a session, click on any “Stimulus Workshop” on APME’s events page.
Officials have struggled to spend the nearly $800 billion stimulus package quickly and effectively.
