A collaboration among NPR member stations examining public policy issues in the states.
The goal is to put news in context, providing insight and background rather than just the latest headlines. Each reporting team will examine the costs of government action, and of not taking action. Ultimately, their work aims to give voters the information they need to hold state government accountable.
StateImpact reporters in six states examine how state issues and policy affect people’s lives. Each state team has a website dedicated to accountability reporting on a focused topic. Stories are featured on local public radio stations and national NPR shows and through digital and print collaborations.
