Report for America today announced that it will place 250 journalists in 164 local newsrooms in 46 states during 2020, four times the amount of this year’s class.

The nonprofit places young journalists in newspapers, TV, radio and digital outlets for one- or two-year assignments in “under-covered” communities to report on local governments, veterans issues, aging populations, education, the environment, health care, military bases and housing.  

It picks up half of the journalist’s salary, while the news outlet and local partners foot the other half.

RFA is funded by the James L. Knight Foundation, Joyce Foundation, David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Ford Foundation, Facebook Journalism Project, Google News Initiation, Craig Newmark Philanthropies and others.
