Funds for New Voices

Monday, December 10, 2007

Got the next big great idea for a community news start-up? Then The New Voices grant program of J-Lab wants to hear it, and potentially fund it. J-Lab, the Institute for Interactive Journalism at the University of Maryland and an MTF grantee, is currently accepting applications for new community news iniatives. The rules - in brief - are that the venture has to be new, must be news or information-oriented (no advocacy), must be online and open to the public. Grants are one-time only and for a maximum of $17,000.

Few programs or organizations provide specific start-up funding, so it's a rare opportunity worth exploring if you have the next big idea for covering your community. For more info and application information, visit:

The deadline is Feb. 20.
