Supported by a Greater Montana Foundation grant, this is the initial story in the Long Streets reporting project. This project reflects the issue of top importance, Jobs and the Economy, as identified by Montanans in both of GMF's professionally conducted media surveys. This report has been republished widely in the Montana media.
You'll definitely want to take the time to read this outstanding reporting.
The Greater Montana Foundation is now offering new education assistance grants to individual Montana news media professionals and journalism students to strengthen their ability to report more effectively on issues of jobs and the economy. The $500 per person grants are for any course related to these issues, whether on-line or in-person, at any of the state’s post-secondary institutions.
General grants are available for nonprofits and others: for film, TV programs, documentaries, videos, webinars, etc. with applications due annually on April 1 and awards made in June.
A major goal for GMF’s founder, Ed Craney was to improve commercial broadcasting in the state. There is no deadline for grant applications from commercial stations if you can demonstrate that this is an urgent and critical issue & production is time-limited
