The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation recently announced a call of applications for their new initiative to help news organizations find sustainable publishing solutions. Nonprofit newsrooms and/or newsrooms that serve underrepresented communities are invited to apply for the initiative.

The three-year initiative, in its inaugural year, will offer one-time grants of up to $20,000 to 25 publishers as subsidies to adopt and manage digital platforms.

Through the initiative, Knight aims to help newsrooms access and adopt new digital publishing systems with the aim of increasing revenue, membership and audience engagement.

The call for applications is managed by the News Revenue Hub, a nonprofit organization that works with nearly 50 publishers on building membership revenue, growing audience and developing sustainable business practices.
