Microgrants for tobacco industry investigations [Brazil]

Posted on Nov 17, 2022 in Investigative Journalism

Investigative journalists anywhere in Brazil can apply for these grants.

News outlet O Joio e O Trigo, specializing in investigative reporting on health and food, in partnership with ACT Promoção da Saúde, an organization advocating for healthcare policies, has microgrants available for investigative reporting projects.

The program "Behind the Smoke" is accepting submissions of investigative stories that dig deeper on tobacco corporations lobbying to weaken public policies, government regulations and rules, and to influence decision-making. 

There are two microgrants worth BRL5,000 available. Grantees will be mentored by the O Joio e o Trigo team and have their stories published by the outlet.

The application deadline is Nov. 23.
