About this grant

With many newspapers and other news outlets continuing to reduce their science and energy reporting, there is an ongoing need for providing the public with factual information on the changes taking place in the energy system. With prior Mott support, Fresh Energy, a Minnesota-based nonprofit and publisher of "Midwest Energy News", continued to successfully expand its journalistic coverage of renewable energy and energy efficiency stories in Michigan. With continued support, the grantee will increase its production of Michigan-focused reporting to 60 pieces per year and maintain Michigan’s ranking as one of its top four states for readership.
