NPR gets $1.8 million to put reporters in statehouses nationwide

NPR will develop a statehouse enterprise reporting project with a $1.8 million grant from the Open Society Foundations, the New York Times reported on Oct. 17. The initative, called Impact of Government, aims to add at least 100 journalists at NPR member stations in every state over the next three years beginning with an eight-state pilot in March 2011. NPR and the stations hope to raise about $17 million to expand the program, and between $18 million and $19 million annually to sustain it.
