Press Forward Open Call for Closing Local Coverage Gaps 

Application Deadline:  June 12, 2024

Press Forward, the $500 million movement to reimagine local news, will launch applications on April 30 for its first open call for funding focused on addressing the long-standing inequalities in journalistic coverage of underserved communities. 

The Press Forward Open Call on Closing Local Coverage Gaps will provide 100-plus news outlets with an expected $100,000 each in funding, whether they are non-profit or for-profit entities. The funding will be unrestricted, general operating support, allowing the news organizations to spend it as needed to sustain and grow their operations.

For this open call, Press Forward is prioritizing organizations that are producing and delivering news and information to underserved audiences such as communities of color, linguistically diverse communities, low-wealth rural communities, and others not adequately served, reached or represented.


  • 100+ newsrooms to receive $100,000 in general operating support over two years
