The Environmental Reporting Collective announced a new program offering grants for cross-border reporting projects that trace transnational crime. The organization, which is based in 16 countries across Europe, Africa, and Asia, will provide grants of between US$1,000 and $3,000 for media outlets, journalists, and freelancers who collaborate on investigative coverage of the environment. The funds can be used to pay for translations, photo and multimedia costs, and document access fees, as well as compensation for reporters. If candidates are interested in applying but lack project partners, they can propose story ideas on the ERC Slack Group to search for potential collaborators. The deadline to apply is June 30, 2022.
