Women-identifying and non-binary journalists facing financial hardship can apply for this new fund.

The International Women"s Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting candidates for its Journalism Relief Fund.

The fund is intended for journalists who have lost work, were recently laid off or urgently need assistance, such as living assistance to prevent homelessness and food insecurity; acute medical care and mental health services; childcare; and legal support. 

Selected journalists will receive small grants of up to US$2,000. 

Applicants must not have any other source of income available at this time, have worked full time as a journalist within six months of applying for assistance and be directly impacted by the global health crisis.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
