Impact Fund for Reporting on Health Equity and Health Systems


The Impact Fund for Reporting on Health Equity and Health Systems supports ambitious investigative and explanatory projects on systemic inequities in public health, health care policy and the practice of medicine for Black people, Indigenous people and other people of color -- exploring topics such as public health responses and policies, treatment, patient experience, access to care and health outcomes.

Grantees receive: 

  • A $2,000-$10,000 grant to help with reporting costs
  • Five months of professional mentorship from a veteran journalist
  • Monthly online development and brainstorming sessions with other reporters in their class

Journalists can play an important role in highlighting systemic and structural forces and how they impact individuals, families and communities. This Fund supports journalism that calls attention to chronic inequities in public health and health care systems and offers up paths for change.
