The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle was awarded two journalism grants in recent weeks to help defray unexpected costs due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The Facebook Journalism Project Community Grant Program approved the Chronicle’s application for a grant of $5000 to fill immediate gaps and pay unexpected costs associated with covering the impact of COVID-19. That grant program is run in partnership with The Lenfest Institute for Journalism and The Local Media Association. The Chronicle was among 400 North American local news organizations, and among only five news organizations in Greater Pittsburgh, to receive an FJP Community Network grant.
The Chronicle was also awarded $5000 from the Google News Initiative’s Journalism Emergency Relief Fund. That fund received more than 12,000 applications from more than 100 eligible countries. Grants went to more than 5,300 small and midsized newsrooms around the world. PJC
