About this grant

This grant will help WBUR, the National Public Radio affiliate located at Boston University, underwrite a radio documentary project entitled "The Vanishing Middle Class". Specifically, the project will consist of an hour-long documentary examining what it means to be middle class today, and a follow-up series comparing the growing middle-class struggle in two states — Massachusetts and Michigan. "Inside Out" documentary is a production of WBUR and is a major player in the public radio system. The station produces several nationally distributed and award-winning programs, including "Car Talk", "On Point", and "Here and Now" for Public Radio International.
