Ready To Learn Community Partnership Planning Applications

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), as part of the 2015-20 Ready To Learn initiative (RTL) intends to provide funding for up to 30 public television stations in phase one, from which up to 14 stations will be selected for funding in phase two. In phase one (October 1, 2017 through April 30, 2018), applicants must demonstrate that the station has sufficient staff available to support the project with experience in early learning, station leadership support for this project, and the capacity to develop a community engagement collaborative to support early learning in STEM and literacy. In phase two (October 1, 2018 – September 30, 2020), CPB expects to fund approximately 14 of these stations to implement a two-year Community Collaborative for Early Learning & Media (CC-ELM). The objective of the CC-ELM is to give children ages two to eight from low-income households (the "Target Audience") a stronger foundation in early science and literacy learning by engaging them, their families, and their caregivers with Ready To Learn’s high-quality digital and hands-on educational content.

Regional Journalism Collaborations

CPB seeks to increase the capacity of public radio and television stations to create high-quality original and enterprise journalism by supporting Regional Journalism Collaborations ("RJCs") that will establish reporting partnerships between multiple station newsrooms in a state or region. Each RJC should be driven by a focused editorial strategy that is of common interest to the communities served by the RJCs and that will result in more original and enterprise journalism and more "news of distinction" in identified topic areas ("Editorial Strategy"). The objectives of the RJCs are to leverage public media's network of local stations to provide stronger local news service to the public media audience and to increase the flow of locally-produced content of national interest to the signature national programs. An additional objective of the RJCs is to expand the diversity of public media's journalism workforce and coverage to reflect the racial and ethnic diversity and range of perspectives throughout America.
