RAVITCH FISCAL REPORTING PROGRAM

The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Program was the best week of journalism I’ve had in a long time, and perhaps ever. Resources for news training are extremely scarce in my part of the country, as is time, so attending the all-expenses paid program was like winning the lottery.”

 

NEXT RAVITCH PROGRAMS PLANNED FOR JANUARY 2022

The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Program is planning two programs for January 2022.
The first will be the traditional full week deep dive into fiscal reporting for state and local governments. The session will cover budgets, bonds, pensions, tax incentives and timely topics as the states recover from the pandemic.
The second will be a three-day deep dive into how to cover a state or local economy.
Dates for both will be announced in the fall.
To be contact when applications will be opened email greg.david@journalism.cuny.edu.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Program at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York  provides advanced training in state and local fiscal issues through week-long and three-day programs emphasizing in-depth knowledge of key controversies, overcoming reporting challenges and improving storytelling. It will help reporters stay on top of breaking issues through emails, social media, website, and by creating a network of reporters covering the beat. The Ravitch Program is funded by generous grants from Richard Ravitch, long-time New York civic leader.
