Internews has launched a Rapid Response Fund to support local journalism and help information providers continue to operate in increasingly dire economic conditions.

The Rapid Response Fund is currently closed; no applications received after May 28th will be considered in this round. 

Update: Due to the very high number of applications we have received, we need more time to make decisions about grant finalists. If you applied, please be aware that no winners have been chosen yet. We will be making an announcement here by July 18. Please note we are unable to engage in direct correspondence on the fund.
