AZCIR receives third round of funding from Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation

PHOENIX – The Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting, the state’s only nonprofit newsroom dedicated to statewide investigative and accountability reporting, was awarded a third round of operational funding from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.

The $100,000 grant will support AZCIR’s ongoing efforts to expand original and collaborative reporting in Arizona, with an emphasis on data, and to increase its focus on using technology and computer programming to free more public records.

The grant includes an initial installment of $75,000 of operational funding, and provides an additional opportunity for $25,000 in matching funds. AZCIR will have one year to raise $25,000, which EEJF will then match.
