Posted on Aug 12, 2022 in Media Sustainability

Local news organizations in the United States can apply for grants up to US$5,000.

The American Press Institute (API) is accepting applications for its 2022 Election Coverage and Community Listening Fund. The program empowers news organizations to implement community listening approaches in their elections coverage between now and November 2022.

API is interested in supporting projects that seek to shore up trust and engagement among communities of color. Ethnic media organizations will receive at least 30 percent of grant funds.

After selected news organizations receive the grant, API will facilitate several peer-learning sessions during the three-month grant period.

The deadline is Aug. 17.
