Fact-Checking Innovation Initiative open [Worldwide]

Posted on Jul 1, 2020 in Combating Mis- and Disinformation

Fact-checking organizations that are verified signatories of the IFCN’s Code of Principles and/or organizations that have been regularly publishing non-partisan fact checks over the last three months can apply.

The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) and Facebook have launched the second round of the Fact-Checking Innovation Initiative, focusing on technology innovation and development.

The initiative offers grants of up to US$100,000  to support projects aimed at strengthening fact-checking and the fight against misinformation.

Applicants that are not fact-checking organizations but partnering with fact-checking organizations are also eligible.

The deadline is July 24.
