The Program, administered by J-Lab at the University of Maryland, is a pioneering program with the objective to seed innovative community news ventures in the United States. The Program will provide grants of $12,000 to help fund the start-up of 10 micro-local news projects. Grants will be awarded to those applicants whose projects benefit a defined geographic or special-interest community and foster an open exchange of journalistically sound ideas, information, news, and opinion in those communities. Grants are available for print or electronic news initiatives including online, cable, broadcast, narrowcast, satellite, and mobile efforts. Additional information and an online application are available on the Web site.
