Apply to the North Carolina Local News Lab Fund until March 30


The North Carolina Local News Lab Fund is pleased to open its first call for applications. We are looking for ideas from community groups, newsrooms, libraries and anyone who wants to help ensure that all North Carolinians have access to the local news and information they need to make their communities thrive.

The Fund is asking for one-page letters submitted through an online system that share how your organization or project will help build the state’s capacity for more relevant and useful news and information for North Carolina’s communities.

Applications are now closed. This call was open between March 1- March 30, 2018. 

On this page, you’ll find more information about the fund, how to apply, the timeline for proposals, and advice for what to include in your letter. (Llame a Language Service Solution marcando (919) 949-9272 con preguntas sobre nuestra traducción.)

This is the first open call at the fund. We value your feedback, questions and want to hear from you. Our goal is to make this accessible to as many people and organizations as we can. If you are not sure if you are a fit, if anything isn’t clear, or if you want to offer feedback, please write localnewslab@democracyfund.org. You can also join an open office hour March 14 at 1 p.m. ET to ask questions about the application.
