The Pulitzer Center is currently accepting applications for the U.S. Local News Reporting Grants to help local U.S. newsrooms cover the big, underreported stories that affect them all—and through education and other outreach promote the public engagement that is essential if the democracy is to thrive.

The Local News Reporting Grants are open to freelance and staff journalists working with local U.S. news outlets to publish in-depth enterprise and investigative reporting projects. The Pulitzer Center is already actively working with partner outlets in many cities, from Milwaukee to Louisville to Tucson to St. Louis. They are committed to investing in U.S. local news by providing the resources to cover stories that might not otherwise get told.
