InvestigateWest, a nonprofit investigative journalism site based in Seattle, has received a $40,000 grant from the Bullitt Foundation.
AHCJ members Daniel Lathrop and Carol Smith are among the founders of the site, which “rose from the ashes of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer” in July.
The grant will support in-depth reporting on environmental issues, one of the site’s main focuses. InvestigateWest also reports on social justice and health issues, especially as they relate to the Pacific Northwest and the West.
The Bullitt Foundation’s mission is to “safeguard the natural environment by promoting responsible human activities and sustainable communities in the Pacific Northwest.”
