Internews Information Saves Lives Rapid Response Fund

The Internews Information Saves Lives Rapid Response Fund aims to help small, local news organizations survive in the face of COVID-19.

The Fund was seeded with $100,000 in unrestricted funding from Internews, to directly support media outlets, organizations and individuals reporting on COVID-19 for underserved communities around the world. With additional support from Luminate, they will support more than 100 grantees.

The grant program aims to support activities including but not limited to:

  • Content designed to reach audiences in any medium: print, audio, video and on any platform: print, radio, TV, website, mobile phone, social media.
  • Creation, production and dissemination of information related to the coronavirus and COVID-19 that will keep people safe and help them make informed decisions for themselves, their families and communities: scientific developments, symptoms and treatment, local health policies and procedures, daily useful local community news and information, etc
  • Creation, production and dissemination of information related to the coronavirus and COVID-19 that targets and/or elevates the voices and needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized: refugees, displaced, LGBTQI, people with disabilities, people living with HIV, victims of gender-based violence.
  • Creation, production and dissemination of journalism and reporting related to the coronavirus and COVID-19 that holds governments and service providers accountable for their handling of the crisis: data journalism, tech reporting, economic reporting, political and policy reporting.
  • Creation, production and dissemination of information that highlights and critically evaluates civic restrictions, censorship, and attacks on civil society and the press that governments may try to justify in response to the COVID-19 crisis, online or offline.
  • Creation, production, and dissemination of reporting related to digital safety best practices, as well as digital security threats or cyberattacks that relate directly to risks being created by the coronavirus and COVID-19.
  • Data science, network mapping, data visualization/localization, and other innovative initiatives that contribute to the dissemination of and safe access to quality information related to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Training and mentoring of content creators and information providers.
  • Fact-checking initiatives; work that tracks or combats rumors and misinformation.
  • Procuring supplies necessary to improve newsroom safety or to allow for remote newsroom set ups and remote coverage of COVID-19, including phone/internet cards for staff, boom microphones, online/remote recording tools, transportation for staff who would normally take public transportation, cleaning costs for newsrooms, etc.

    Grants will be allocated according to the following priority considerations:

  • Applicant is a trusted grassroots or community-based organization
  • Applicant does not currently receive Internews funding
  • The work is relevant to the descriptions under A: Grant Information above:
  • Does the applicant reach a vulnerable, marginalized or underserved group?
  • Is the applicant already doing the work described in the application?
  • Can the applicant show that they are a trusted source of information in their community?
  • If the work is not already happening, is the applicant in a position to do the work to meet an urgent need in their community?
  • Can the applicant demonstrate that they take steps to ensure the accuracy of their content?
  • How does the applicant know there is a need in their community for this work? Is anyone else doing it?
  • Will the grant enable the work to happen quickly? (If the work proposed is new and will cost much more than the grant will cover, such as developing an app or setting up an expensive and time-consuming new project, the applicant would need to show they have additional funding.)

    Apply by 28th May.
