We are pleased to open the application process to news organizations across the country.
We will be fielding 12 reporters in 2018 and at least 28 in 2019. To be considered as a host news organization for the 2018 pilot year, fill out the very brief preliminary application.
The gist: make the case for how you’d use one or more Report for America corps members to improve the local reporting on under-covered issues or areas. The early decision deadline is December 1, and priority will be given to newsrooms that apply earlier. We’re finalizing the schedule for when the finalist newsrooms will be announced. Those organizations will need to provide a bit more information.
If you have any questions, check out the FAQs for applying host organizations.
By the way, we’re just getting going — so we’d love your feedback on how to improve the application or the process. Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
