All Archived Public Service Media Economic Response Initiative Grants
CPB has created the Economy Response Grant program in response to the widespread economic downturn, and is open to all CPB-qualified public radio and television stations. The program seeks to support stations' efforts to help their communities through initiatives that establish collaboration with community partners and that raise awareness of the impact the current economic crisis is having on the station's community.

The Engaging Communities on the Economy Grants may be used by stations to convene civic leaders, community groups and citizens in productive dialogue - in person, on-air or online - addressing regional and local economic issues. Grants may be used to plan or conduct collaborative projects in response to identified community needs related to the financial crisis (e.g., joblessness, bankruptcies, credit card debt).
