This Health Equity initiative supports five Indigenous-led and -serving newsrooms (from any medium) in incorporating solutions journalism into their coverage of health issues. Participating newsrooms will receive professional development from the Solutions Journalism Network and the Indigenous Journalists Association, an $18,000 grant ($2,000 of which is earmarked for travel to the 2024 Indigenous Media Conference in Oklahoma City). In two-hour monthly meetings and one-hour coaching calls, newsrooms learn the basics of solutions journalism, and how to find and cover meaningful solutions stories related to health care.
Applications are open until Friday, Jan. 5, 2024. Apply here.
