Local newsrooms can apply for this program.

ProPublica is expanding its Local Reporting Network to investigate state government and politics.

The organization will pay the salary, plus an allowance for benefits, for full-time reporters at seven partner news organizations. Selected reporters will work on their projects throughout 2019.

The reporters will report to their home newsroom, with the guidance and support from ProPublica. Their work will be published or broadcast by their home newsroom and by ProPublica as well.

Applicants must send a proposal describing an investigative project they want to pursue, the reporter who would be chosen to spearhead the work, and the suggested market salary for him or her. 

The deadline is Sept. 14.
