Watchdog Fund grant for freelance and investigative journalism

Thanks to the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, investigative reporters facing costs associated with their reporting were given an annual $2,500 Investigative Reporting Grant to alleviate those obstacles.

The CHC Investigative Reporting Grant, while primarily reserved for journalists working in the greater Chicago area without the financial backing of a major media organization, was open to all reporters.

The Chicago Headline Club is no longer administering the Watchdog Fund grant.
