Connected Coastlines

Connected Coastlines is a nationwide climate reporting initiative in U.S. coastal states. The initiative is building a consortium of newsrooms and independent journalists across America to report on the local effects of erratic weather patterns on coastal populations using the latest climate science. Currently, the Pulitzer Center is supporting 16 reporting projects and will cover climate change issues on every coastline in the mainland U.S.—the East Coast, Great Lakes, Gulf Coast and West Coast—along with Hawaii and Alaska. Please visit the special website we've created for the Connected Coastlines projects.

If you are a journalist or editor interested in joining this network, please visit our 2020 Connected Coastlines grant page for more information or email contact@pulitzercenter.org.
