NOLA Today is a data platform for the people of New Orleans. We combine hyperlocal journalism with open data technology to tell stories about our beloved hometown.

This website is just one piece of the NOLA Today platform. If your organization could benefit from local data, we'd love to hear from you. Email to start a conversation.

We are particularly interested in partnering with non-profit organizations presented with data-oriented grant opportunities. Partnering with organizations like yours allows us to continue offering a fast, ad-free, and privacy-focused news source for New Orleanians.
