The Pulitzer Center is seeking applications from journalists who want to report stories as part of Connected Coastlines, a nationwide climate reporting initiative in U.S. coastal states.

Started in 2019, this initiative is building a consortium of newsrooms and independent journalists across the U.S. to report on the local effects of erratic weather patterns on coastal populations using the latest climate science.

Potential applicants should familiarize themselves with some of the recent Connected Coastlines reporting projects. In 2019, the Pulitzer Center supported 15 Connected Coastlines projects. The first project was reported by grantee Hal Bernton of The Seattle Times.

Pulitzer now has supported dozens of reporting projects covering climate change issues on every coastline on the U.S. mainland—the East Coast, Great Lakes, Gulf Coast and West Coast—along with Hawaii and Alaska. They are eager to receive reporting proposals related to the coastal regions of South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, Alabama, and the Delmarva region.
