The Field Foundation is launching two new programs, supported by MacArthur, to help make Chicago more racially equitable. The initiatives will award $5 million in grants to nurture new sources of civic and media leadership for Chicago’s future. The Leaders for a New Chicago awards will support individuals who are leaders in their communities, professional fields, or interest areas who are not heard or given a platform in public discourse, with the goal of advancing equity and access to opportunity. Nominations are now open. The Media & Storytelling program, supported as part of MacArthur’s Jack Fuller Legacy Initiative, will provide grants to strengthen and expand the reporting and storytelling capacity of a more diverse set of Chicago news outlets, reporters, and media makers to ensure stories of all Chicagoans are told accurately, fairly, and contextually. Applications open April 15, 2019.
