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.


Applications are now open to talented, service-oriented journalists for the class of 2019. Do you want to serve under-covered areas to provide Americans with the information they need to improve their communities and hold powerful institutions accountable? Join the movement. Our application is simple. Apply by February 8 and start working in a newsroom by June.

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.
