Journalismfund.eu is seeking applications for the Local Cross-Border Investigative Journalism Grant Programme to address the shortage of local independent journalism by awarding grants to local investigative journalistic projects in Belgium and the Netherlands and by stimulating the cross-border collaboration.

In this way, cities in Belgium and the Netherlands could mutually strengthen each other (e.g. by forming each other’s benchmark) and as such increase the impact of the supported publications.

This project aims at strengthening local cross-border, independent and investigative journalism in order to increase the availability of qualitative local news, and at making citizens more aware of local – and often interrelated and global – issues and possible solutions.

As such it aims to contribute to citizens’ critical thinking, well-informed debates/decisions and to foster civic engagement.
