FCH made a general operating support grant to back the work of two independent community newspapers, The Lakeville Journal and The Millerton News.

Published by the nonprofit Lakeville Journal Millerton News Media, the two papers have supplied information to the public for about a century. The publications persevered through COVID and are now navigating the waters in an era where ‘news deserts’ are becoming more and more common. General operating support will enable the organization to foritfy staffing for The Millerton News desk and expand reporting capacity.
