We eagerly await proposals from enterprising news media collectives that will reveal new perspectives and increase transparency about under-reported property rights issues, such as land tenure, indigenous land rights, land deals, concessions, resource rights, and overlapping land use rights— just to name a few.

● Committed to providing credible, independent news, information or public interest debate.
● Independent from the government or of any other political or economic interest group.
● Supportive of democratic practices and institutions, political pluralism, transparency, human rights, including the rights of women and minorities, and inter-ethnic coexistence.
● Legally registered, except in extraordinary circumstances.
● In regular operation for at least one year. A record of quality journalism and reporting. In compelling circumstances this requirement may be waived.

Deadline: This grant opportunity is now open, and applicants are encouraged to submit their proposals for this opportunity by May 1, 2017.
