The Flordia Center for Government Accountability provides support and assistance for citizens and investigative journalists working to ensure government accountability and transparency. Civic engagement is critical to a healthy and robust democratic society. Citizens rely on a variety of news sources for information essential to their ability to hold government accountable for its actions. Traditional news outlets, particularly at the local level, face pressures and are increasingly unable to meet the informational needs of the public because of limited and dwindling resources.
The goal of FLCGA is to both facilitate and accelerate local on-the-ground reporting with the tools, expertise, and knowledge using aggressive public records investigation and well-sourced quality reporting.
