The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting is a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative journalism organization founded in 2009 to research, write and publish stories about Maine government. These stories empower citizens to understand how their government works and hold public officials accountable. Our vision is to fulfill the responsibility of a free press in the American democracy by looking beneath the surface of Maine government and writing clearly and without fear or favor about what we discover.
The Center keeps citizens informed about their government and their public servants through high-quality, independent investigative reporting that is published on our website and by more than 30 media partners across Maine.
Focus Areas: Business, Campaign Finance, Community Issues, Education, Energy, Government, Healthcare
