The New York Transparency Project
The New York Transparency Project was born out of the belief in citizen-driven oversight. We can’t rely on public officials in Albany to solve New York’s corruption problem. We need the understanding, tools, and plan to fight corruption with transparency in every school district, village, town, city, and county across the state.
