Community Creator Initiative


Vocal Media is thrilled to announce the launch of the Community Creator Initiative, a new groundbreaking project aimed at enabling creators through micro-grants to cover critical issues in their communities and states, like Georgia or Wisconsin.
In an era marked by the rapid consolidation and fragmentation of media, local and state news has experienced a concerning decline, leaving many communities without vital information and investigative reporting.
Recognizing this pressing need, our initiative aims to support talented creators based in Georgia or Wisconsin who are passionate about shedding light on local issues and driving positive change in their communities. By providing these grants, we hope to encourage the production of high-quality content that addresses the gaps in a rapidly changing media landscape, fostering a more informed and engaged society.

Program Details

Creators/grantees must live in Georgia or Wisconsin.
Grants will range from $500 to $2,000 per month depending on the content, scope and audience size.
Grantees will generate and post a minimum of 2 videos per month for this program.
Trial period will be 1 month; start and end date to be determined.
