Submit a well-researched but brief pitch of less than 500 words. Include your CV and a proposed budget. But first, please visit EconomicHardship.org to find out what kinds of stories we fund. We tend to award grants to experienced journalists, though we are open to submissions from emerging talents. Photographers should send us low-resolution images (72 dpi) along with a pitch or a query letter attached. All images should include captions in the metadata or an attached caption document. Let us know if other news outlets have covered your story and how your piece will be different.
