FJP Community Network


In partnership with the Lenfest Institute for Journalism, the mission of the Facebook Journalism Project (FJP) Community Network is to support and connect people and organizations that are building community through local news.

1 Overview

The FJP Community Network offers grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 and opportunities for grant recipients to connect with industry experts to support their projects. More than 100 grants will be awarded in 2019.

2 Goal

Whether a person or publisher is trying to build a new business around memberships, report in an underserved community, or build a tool that helps local storytellers find and engage news audiences, we want to provide runway for them to serve their community.

3 Grant Windows

Applications will be accepted three times in 2019 (May, July, and November). Grant recipients have six months from the time of the award to complete their project and share lessons that will benefit other local newsrooms.
