The Lenfest Institute has awarded two types of grants: The Local News Business Model Challenge for projects that explore new business models for sustainable local news and information organizations, and the Philadelphia News Ecosystem Collaboration Grants for planning or prototype projects bringing together organizations in the Philadelphia area for closer collaboration.
