NABJ is offering grant funding to support freelance reporters and producers at Black-owned print, broadcast, and digital outlets through the “Black Press Grant Program.”

The program is supported by a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI).

The grants aim to help ensure Black-owned media outlets are resourced with original and innovative coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic and its intersections within the nation’s K-12 education system.

Journalists and those within Black-owned media are invited to submit original proposals for investigative, feature, and enterprise for a single or series of original stories published/broadcasted in Black-owned media.

Fast grants to freelancers and Black-owned media will be up to $10,000. NABJ will also distribute content produced from the grant through, its newly launched news platform.

Program term extended to May 2023.


The grant is open to journalists working at a Black-owned media organization within the United States or serving as a freelance journalist to a U.S. Black-owned news organization. NABJ membership is not required for funding support, but is helpful.
