10 Newsrooms to Receive Grants to Support Solutions Journalism Projects

Apply for the Local Newsroom Revenue Project

The Solutions Journalism Network, which we recently wrote about, announced it is launching the Local Newsroom Revenue Project.

This project will be a pilot program supported by Google’s recently-announced Google News Initiative. The program is designed to build trust with the public while trying to establish a new business model for local newsrooms.

The Local Newsroom Revenue Project is scheduled to run through March 2021.

Ten newsrooms will receive small grants (up to $10,000) to support solutions journalism projects and business experiments.

Interested news organizations should apply here by Nov. 30.
