The Connecticut News Project is the parent organization of The Connecticut Mirror, a nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization. This funding will support The Mirror’s coverage of health policy, including explanatory and in-depth stories and coverage of public health issues, state and federal health policies, and connections between health and issues such as climate, housing, justice, and the economy.
This is a 24-month grant.
The Connecticut Health Foundation provides grants to 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.
