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.
