Washington City Paper, D.C.’s weekly newspaper of 39 years, is the recipient of two grants from the Facebook Journalism Project that will support its work on D.C.’s maternal health crisis as well as the further development of City Paper’s recently launched reader membership program.

City Paper’s arts editor, Kayla Randall, whose work elevated the conversation on maternal health in the District, has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Facebook Journalism Project Community Network to further her reporting amplifying mothers’ voices through community-driven discussions on maternal and infant health outcomes.
