The European Journalism Centre (EJC) and the Facebook Journalism Project (FJP) have established the European Journalism COVID-19 Support Fund.

The US$3 million fund is intended to support community engagement, address critical business needs and facilitate coverage of the pandemic.

Applications are accepted in three tracks: engagement fund, emergency fund and innovation fund. Organizations must be based in Europe, actively cover COVID-19 and serve communities on a hyperlocal, local or regional scale, or communities of interest.
