This fellowship will offer skills, sources, and best practices to journalists who want to track the $1.9 trillion COVID relief package and report on whether the funds are flowing to and/or having an effect in communities disproportionally affected by the COIVD-19 pandemic. It is also designed to help journalists who wish to power their accountability reporting with a deeper understanding of congressional finance, corporate lobbying, antitrust, taxation, and other federal regulatory issues that will be debated in 2021 and beyond.
