ERC offers collaborative grants for investigative reporting

THE Environmental Reporting Collective (ERC) is accepting applications for its Collaborative Investigation Grants. 

The programme is aimed at promoting collaboration. The grants allow journalists from different countries to work together to fill in gaps in each other’s reporting, especially when tracing environmental crimes across borders.

Media outlets, journalists and freelancers are eligible for grants to collaborate on investigative reporting.
