ProPublica Is Seeking New Applicants for Its Local Reporting Network

We are looking to work with three more newsrooms, for a year beginning in April 2021, on accountability journalism projects.

About the Local Reporting Network

ProPublica is supporting local and regional newsrooms as they work on important investigative projects affecting their communities. Topics include sexual violence, conflicts of interest, housing, and workplace safety. Our partner, the Anchorage Daily News, won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for our collaboration.

“We Have Counties in Deep Trouble”: Oregon Lawmakers Seek to Reverse Timber Tax Cuts That Cost Communities Billions

For decades, corporate timber benefited from tax cuts that devastated local budgets. Lawmakers want change and have filed dozens of bills, making this one of Oregon’s most consequential sessions for forest policy.

Air Quality Regulators in “Cancer Alley” Have Fallen Dangerously Behind

An audit found that the time it takes the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality to issue penalties to polluters has doubled. Some companies that have been known to violate air quality rules were able to keep at it for years, or even decades.

“The People We Serve Are Paying Too Much for Energy:” Virginia Lawmakers Are Targeting Dominion Energy

A bipartisan group of Virginia lawmakers are pushing a legislative package to strengthen oversight of the state’s largest utility, Dominion Energy. The effort could return millions in refunds to customers.
