As the 2024 Presidential campaign begins in earnest, the Better Life Lab at New America is offering a round of reporting grants for stories that cover care and the election. We are looking for stories that are specifically tied to the value of care, be it child care, elder care, or the care economy—and how these issues are affecting the 2024 election. Stories should be solutions-oriented, with a focus on how and why Care issues matter to voters.
We are looking for stories across all mediums, including print and online stories, photojournalism, graphic stories, podcasts, audio stories, and videography. We will help pitch the stories to a wide variety of media outlets to reach broad audiences. Our previous grantees produced stories across a variety of mediums, including a graphic story, radio story, and documentary short, and we are open to new and creative ways to tell the stories to help the general public understand why care matters, and why it can play a pivotal role in this upcoming election.
If you already have an idea, please send pitches to Rebecca Gale at email@example.com. Pitches will be considered and stories commissioned on a rolling basis starting in the spring of 2024.
