About Us


Since 1995, the North Carolina Progress Board has served as an independent proponent for strategic thinking, action, and accountability in the state's public policy arena.

New Policy Products Under Development

This year, the North Carolina Progress Board (NCPB) will publish several public policy information products via our website, the North Carolina Progress Portal.  Our goal is to help public officials and citizens alike navigate the thicket of public policy information—by packaging it in standard, more user-friendly formats.  To that end, we have designed five new products that will translate traditional public policy data into more concise and visually compelling formats.  Those products are:
