Civil allocated $1M in grants for a “First Fleet” of Newsrooms. We did this to ensure that, when the platform first launches, there will already be a number of high quality Newsrooms, broadly focused on local, international, investigative and policy journalism, with which they can engage. These Newsrooms applied for grants in fall/winter 2017, and come from journalists with backgrounds at publications including Al Jazeera, The Awl, BBC, Chicago Sun-Times, The Denver Post, LA Times, The New Yorker, Politico, TIME Magazine, Vice and The Wall Street Journal.
