The Main Street Project

Every neighborhood has a beating heart. Sometimes it's a single street where the lifeblood of the community flows.

As the pandemic recedes and relief money begins to flow, The Main Street Project will document economic recovery one street at a time.

We'll talk to many people living and working on each street we visit. We'll learn who's bouncing back and who's being left out. We'll look for strategies that work and take note of those that don't. And we'll look into whether the economy that's emerging on your street is more equitable than the economy we left behind.

Our series began on streets in Seattle, Tacoma and Kent. Where should we go next?

Fill out our short questionnaire to suggest a street you know.
