In summer 2013, we undertook demographic and narrative research on the issue of urban poverty in North Carolina, focusing specifically on Mecklenburg and Durham counties. In 2014, we received a grant from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation to continue, deepen and extend this research to other NC communities. We will spend the next couple of years talking to people and studying poverty in places across the state.

Our reports on CharlotteNorth Carolinians without health insurance and Wilkes County are available online as PDFs, along related material. 

We're currently putting finishing touches on our portrait of Goldsboro, in Wayne County. In the pipeline are reports on gentrification in Durham and  hunger in High Point. Please check back as we continue to add new locations to the series.
