I. SUMMARY:

The USAID Media Program is a five-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the International Research and Exchange Board (IREX). The USAID Media Program supports a vibrant, resilient, networked media sector that provides Georgia’s citizens and diverse communities with the civically relevant, fact-based independent information they need to build a more just, prosperous, and inclusive society.

II. PURPOSE:

USAID Media Program intends to support innovative media actors and journalistic start-ups. USAID Media Program will provide grants and managerial guidance for initiatives which aim to support media and information outlets with new, sustainable approaches and business models for reaching communities and audiences with fact-based, civically-relevant content.

As consumption of news and current events content is constantly evolving and audiences are steadily migrating from single to multi-platform and social media domains, the New Business Model Grants Program seeks to provide modest financing to address evolving shifts in Georgia’s media landscape. The grants are intended to trigger and encourage experimentation with new, more financially sustainable journalistic models and support entrepreneurial journalism. In addition to funding support, USAID Media Program will support successful applicants in accessing relevant international models and lessons which can benefit their initiative.

The USAID Media Program encourages creative, out-of-box ideas and approaches to media, digital journalism and storytelling.

USAID Media Program will review candidates for the grants using a two-stage process. Applicants must first submit a short concept note, describing their business idea in brief.
