Health Equity

Connecticut News Project

2020 - $150,000

This funding will support coverage of health policy news by The Connecticut Mirror, the nonprofit news organization run by the Connecticut News Project. This coverage will include explanatory and policy-oriented enterprise reporting, as well as coverage of emerging health issues and other health topics.

The Connecticut Health Foundation provides grants to nonprofit media organizations because news reporting on health care provides insights, informs debates, and ensures that critical topics reach broad audiences. The funding is awarded with an understanding that the journalism will be independent, and the grant will play no role in editorial decisions about health coverage.
