INN is pleased to work with the Facebook Journalism Project on its $25 million COVID-19 Local News Relief Fund. Launching April 13, the fund provides grants to local news organizations across the U.S., nonprofit and for-profit, to help them continue serving their communities during the coronavirus outbreak. INN will help review grant applications from nonprofit news organizations.
"Facebook's support will bring added reporting to people in hundreds of communities and states where nonprofit news outlets have become the central information providers during this crisis," said Sue Cross, INN executive director and CEO. "We are seeing brave and creative coverage by so many journalists, and with Facebook's help they can expand their reporting as a public service."
