Bringing Stories Home

Bringing Stories Home is the Pulitzer Center's initiative designed to help U.S. newsrooms cover the big, underreported stories that affect us all—and through education and other outreach promote the public engagement that is essential if our democracy is to thrive.

News outlets eligible for participation in Bringing Stories Home include all those serving U.S. cities in which population ranks 21st or lower. The Pulitzer Center is already actively working with partner outlets in many such cities, from Louisville to Tucson to St. Louis. Bringing Stories Home represents a major investment in local news, providing resources to cover stories that might not otherwise get told. 

Support for Bringing Stories Home is provided in part by an unrestricted endowment gift from the Facebook Journalism Project. Support for reporting projects also comes from the Omidyar Network, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the MacArthur Foundation, Humanity United, and other generous donors to the Pulitzer Center.
