BRUSSELS - On 2 June 2020, the Flemish Government took a final decision on the amount of emergency funds to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes support to Journalismfund.eu, via the Fonds Pascal Decroos project, for local projects of freelance journalists who can rely on few other support measures.

With this initiative the Fonds Pascal Decroos (a grant programme of Journalismfund.eu) wants to stimulate local, in-depth and special journalistic work in a medium-neutral way.  We award grants to projects that go beyond regular reporting, daily journalism and correspondence. The grant project also contributes to pluralistic, local reporting as an important democratic foundation by stimulating informed debate.

For whom?
Journalists (starters and experienced journalists) with good ideas for a local story in the Flemish and Brussels region.

In order to be eligible for a grant, journalists must ensure that their story is published in at least one Dutch-speaking medium in Belgium.
