Freelance investigative journalists can apply for this program.

Freelance Investigative Reporters and Editors (FIRE), a project of Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), is accepting applications for its Virtual Newsroom and Editorial Consultancy. 

The Virtual Newsroom offers open-records coaching, trained research assistance, legal review and funding in some cases. Applicants must have a specific reporting project.

The Editorial Consultancy provides a one-hour consultation with FIRE for advice to help decide what specific story to develop with FIRE support.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
