Another KCNN offering: Funding Database:
From 2005 to today, J-Lab has tracked $135,859,660 million in grants awarded to at least 128 news projects [325 grants from 207 foundations]. In the searchable database you can find these grants by the name of the foundation that issued funding, by the name of the news project that received grant support, or by state.
This database includes funding only for news and information projects. It does not include funding for public broadcasting programs, for the underwriting of documentaries, for journalism training or student news services.
