The crisis in journalism has become a crisis for our democracy.

We are calling on a new generation of journalists to serve in community news organizations across the country.

It is time to Report for America.


This year, Report for America will place 60 journalists in newsrooms across the country.  Among our 2019 news organizations, spanning 30 states and 1 territory, are Centro de Periodismo Investigativo, a respected nonprofit watchdog group in Puerto Rico, the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead in North Dakota, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cincinnati Enquirer and Associated Press.  Thus far, 18 of ours corps members will be placed in non-profit organizations, 3 in weeklies, 7 in public radio stations and more than two dozen in newspapers. Additional news organizations and critical coverage gaps will be announced in the coming weeks. Corps Member applications are currently under review by our amazing team of judges. Selections for 2019 will be announced in April.

Join the Movement


RFA corps members report in local newsrooms across America, including newspaper, radio, TV and digital outlets. They report on under-covered issues and communities.


RFA newsrooms host between one and five reporters for a year at a time, covering stories and beats, important to their community and that would otherwise go uncovered.
