California Health Equity Impact Fund

The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism Health Equity Impact Fund is designed for journalists who think big and want to make a difference by bringing untold stories to light about the systemic issues that stand in the way of good health for California families and communities. Supported with a generous grant and five months of professional mentorship, participating reporters can expect to conclude this program producing a substantial investigative or explanatory project.

This program advances the Center for Health Journalism’s Impact Reporting model, which marries powerful narratives, data and community engagement to serve as a catalyst for change. Through their reporting, past grantees have changed the conversation about under-covered health issues, sparking new policies, practices and laws in their communities. 

The Center for Health Journalism encourages interested journalists to reach out to them ahead of time to discuss their project idea. To set up an appointment with their outreach consultant, please fill out this quick form
