THE GROUNDTRUTH PROJECT is an award-winning, independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit news organization dedicated to supporting the next generation of journalists in the U.S. and around the world.
Our mission is to restore journalism from the ground up by supporting the next generation of journalists through field reporting that serves under-covered corners of the United States and the world. In 2018, GroundTruth launched Report for America. One year later, we had 60 journalists working for 50 news organizations across 27 states and Puerto Rico. Two years later we have been able to almost quadruple the number of journalists, and 3X the number of newsrooms. Each is focused on a critical coverage gap within their host community. Their newsrooms range from Pulitzer Prize-winning daily papers and alternative weeklies to digital-only non-profits, cable news and public radio stations.
