EHRP funds narrative journalism on American economic hardship and financial insecurity.  The editors are actively seeking pitches for reported features, investigative narratives and personal essays. We are open not only to great written journalism, but also photography and multimedia. Once accepted, we fund, edit and help place these pieces.
