Applications are open for the Center for Community Media Small Business Reporting Fellowship 2023. Small businesses have been enduring rising operating costs, shrinking sales, supply chain disruptions and other challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and exacerbated by inflation. The unique stories of these businesses and the people running them – from the bodega employee to the street vendor and the family managing the corner restaurant – often go unreported.

Fellows will have the opportunity, under the guidance of an editor, to cover the small businesses in their communities and produce and publish/post in an established community media outlet three in-depth stories about the ongoing struggles facing owners and staff, as well as the new opportunities for attracting and sustaining business.
