Grant: FIJ Emergency Grants for Coverage of Police Misconduct
Posted: June 23, 2020
The Fund for Investigative Journalism today announced that it is offering immediate emergency grants for U.S.-based journalists working on investigative stories related to police misconduct. The emergency grants are available for investigative journalism projects that break new ground and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance or misuse of power – in the public or private sectors related to police misconduct. The Fund for Investigative Journalism said it strongly encourages applications from journalists of color, ethnic media, and local media. Journalists can apply for grants of up to $10,000. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and grant decisions will be made and communicated in less than two weeks from the time an application is received.
