Welcome to our new website

The Progress Portal presents a new website format for the North Carolina Progress Board that offers you a variety of information that can, and should, help shape the state's public policy discussions.

The Progress Board's mission is to help North Carolina's leaders and citizens stay focused on the big picture: the long-term goals and needs of our state and her citizens. This means setting milestones, checking progress, reporting data, recommending course corrections, and scanning imaginative solutions to jumpstart change.

With this website, we put critical information at your fingertips, organized in an easy-to-follow format to encourage thoughtful debate. Ultimately, we hope this will increase citizen involvement in decision-making; improve our leaders' ability to identify promising programs and policies and promote accountability in government.

The website has seven major divisions, each with a link in the navigation box on the left-hand side of the opening page. Click on:
