Reclaim New York is a non-partisan, 501c3 non-profit organization that educates New Yorkers on issues like affordability, transparency, and education. Through civic trainings, we empower citizens to engage their state and local government. Most importantly, we’re a group of New Yorkers that believes deeply in helping each citizen reclaim ownership in their relationship with government.
In this digital age, it is important that local governments are accessible online. Do you know how accessible your local government is? How do you bid on a contract? Are budgets uploaded as a PDF file that is searchable? Does your government post their spending online? Use Reclaim’s new Online Transparency Index to evaluate your local government and see how it compares to surrounding entities.
