The Investigative Reporting Workshop was founded in 2008 to innovate and incubate nonprofit models for investigative and explanatory news production and distribution, in response to the commercial news media’s decades-long decline. The Accountability Project enables journalists and researchers to search hundreds of government data sets from different sources—curated, standardized and indexed by IRW's team—that would otherwise be siloed or unavailable.
