The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Program at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York provides advanced training in state and local fiscal issues through week-long and three-day programs emphasizing in-depth knowledge of key controversies, overcoming reporting challenges and improving storytelling. It will help reporters stay on top of breaking issues through emails, social media, website, and by creating a network of reporters covering the beat. The Ravitch Program is funded by generous grants from Richard Ravitch, long-time New York civic leader.
Beginning Sept. 19, qualified journalists will be accepted on a first come, first accepted basis. There are approximately 25 spots for the fiscal session and 20 for the local economic session.
