The Foundation for American Communities (FACS) will expand its journalist education programs with the help of two grants.
FACS got a three-year, $400,000 grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to provide more in-newsroom programs. The MacArthur grant will subsidize individual news organizations for up to one-third of the cost of educational programs with an economic focus.
Pasadena based FACS also received a one-year, $75,000 grant from The Freedom Forum to expand its programs in science, business, law, health, and First Amendment issues. The programs were developed with the Freedom Forum, whose data are often used in the programs as instructional tools.
