Media companies in metropolitan areas of 100,000 or fewer people can apply for one of two grants.
The recipients will each receive $2,500 from the Park and APME foundations to jump-start or support their initiatives, and an expense-paid trip to the annual ASNE-APME-APPM News Leadership Conference Oct. 8-11 in Washington, D.C.
To enter, draft a proposal of 500 words or less and include examples of how you would approach the project. It should be multiplatform, include social media and address a longstanding community issue. If the project is part of a partnership, the application must address the news organization’s role in it and its need of the grant to help complete it.
DEADLINE IS MIDNIGHT EDT JULY 24.
Attach your proposal as a Word file or PDF.
