J-Lab Project to Fund 10 Community News Initiatives

J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism (www.j-lab.org) has announced an invitation to U.S. nonprofit groups and education organizations to apply for funding to launch community news ventures in 2008 and to share best practices and lessons learned from their efforts. The New Voices Project will help fund the start-up of ten innovative local news initiatives next year. Each project may receive as much as $17,000 in grants over two years. Of the ten projects to be funded in 2008, at least three will target former Knight newspaper communities. Grant guidelines and an online application can be found at the project website. The deadline for proposals is February 20, 2008.
