The National Press Foundation and the National Press Club Journalism Institute will jointly sponsor a program that will award grants to journalists who plan to cover environmental justice.

“As the climate crisis worsens, journalists have a special duty to tell the stories of the people who will be most affected – and we now know the human suffering will not be equally shared,” said Sonni Efron, President and CEO of the National Press Foundation.

“These grants are intended to increase coverage of environmental justice and afford access to a wider range of journalists who want to address the disproportionate effects of environmental challenges on communities of color and other vulnerable populations,” said Julie Moos, Executive Director of the National Press Club Journalism Institute.

Utilize This Offer

Grants ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 will be awarded to support journalism in any medium that centers environmental justice and environmental racism in the United States. This could include coverage of the disproportionate harms to disadvantaged communities from pollution, the effects of climate change, or other relevant topics.

Applications will be accepted until June 15, 2021.

The grant applications will be judged by distinguished journalists or former journalists who have produced notable work in exposing environmental racism and its consequences.

Successful applicants will be informed on or about July 15, 2021.

Work supported by these grants should be published or broadcast in a U.S.-based media outlet by Dec. 31, 2021.
