AZCIR is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to statewide investigative reporting.
The Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting has received a $100,000 grant from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation. The grant will help fund AZCIR’s daily operations and further develop its data analysis service for partner newsrooms and produce data-driven accountability journalism projects on important public policy issues.
More than 2.8 million Arizona residents — or 44 percent of the state’s population — live within areas that are most vulnerable to a catastrophic accidental release of gaseous, and sometimes explosive hazardous chemicals, a months-long analysis of federal records by ABC15 and AZCIR found.
