The Fund for Investigative Journalism organized a panel at the National Association of Black Journalists convention in Miami, on August 7 to talk about the nitty-gritty of grants for journalists.

FIJ board member Lottie Joiner and Director of Operations Ana Arana answered questions from journalists about the best way to get story ideas funded.  Joiner encouraged journalists at the gathering to not be afraid to take the plunge and apply for grants to complete stories.  Also participating in the session were the Pulitzer Center’s senior editor Tom Hundley.
