Our mission is to protect news organisations and journalists that are supporting the most affected communities across Europe. Our grants will help them provide essential coverage, inform citizens and fight misinformation with minimal resources during the COVID-19 crisis.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide core funding to support community engagement initiatives, address critical business needs, and facilitate innovative journalistic coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are three tracks that will provide grants ranging between €5,000 and €50,000. Priority will be given to small and medium-sized news organisations supporting the communities most affected by the crisis.
Applications for wave 1 of the European Journalism COVID-19 Support Fund are now closed.
€5,000 grants to help local media engage communities and their
conversations with short-term or one-off COVID-19-related initiatives.
€10,000 and €25,000 grants focused on providing specific financial support to address immediate and critical business needs.
