The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conducting investigative reporting on issues of critical importance in the United States. Its investigative work explores topics including criminal justice, immigration, human rights, health care, workers' rights, climate change, and other underreported subjects critical to American life. Since 2013, it has co-produced "Reveal," the investigative podcast, heard via 500 public radio stations nationwide, and 1.5 million downloads, with PRX, which features its work and that of partner newsrooms working at the local, regional, and national level. It also produces documentaries and television news stories, publishes in-depth investigative reports, and partners with local and regional outlets to support local news coverage.

2015 • 5 years • Journalism & Media

The Center for Investigative Reporting is a nonprofit journalism organization dedicated to researching, reporting, and disseminating in-depth investigative reports. Its work reveals abuses of power and systemic social problems, particularly those that affect individuals and communities that are vulnerable and disenfranchised. Its investigations result in print, audio, video, interactive, data visualization, animation, and spoken word poetry reports disseminated by newspapers, magazines, digital news sites, and television and radio news programs, and as podcasts and live events.  This general operating award will support the editorial leadership, which assigns and manages stories and ensures the highest standards of journalism across all projects; will provide the ability and flexibility to seed new reporting projects; and will fund core operations and infrastructure. The outcome is original and impactful journalism that often leads to policy and administrative change.

The Center for Investigative Journalism is a nonprofit journalism organization dedicated to researching, reporting, and disseminating in-depth investigative reports for the purpose of contributing to a better informed public. This grant supports TYT Investigates, a new multiplatform investigative documentary series being developed by the Center for Investigative Reporting in collaboration with The Young Turks Network. The Young Turks Network is best known for its flagship program, The Young Turks, a hosted news and culture program available online, on satellite radio, and more recently on Current TV. TYT Investigates will combine the serious journalism and video reporting capabilities of CIR with the non-traditional style and reach of The Young Turks Network to bring serious and timely investigative journalism about corporate and government accountability to a younger and more global audience. This grant supports the launch of TYT Investigates, and the research, production and distribution of four initial investigative reports.
