The Granite State News Collaborative is a new enterprise that breaks down barriers of competition among news outlets in favor of collaboration. The collaborative formed in response to the hollowing out of the traditional news gathering industry (60 percent of news-industry jobs in New Hampshire have disappeared since 2001), and shares reporting duties and content across its 16 member media outlets.
A Foundation grant for core mission support helped the collaborative as it undertook its first statewide reporting project on behavioral health and expanded its member base. The collaborative has secured additional funding from the Knight Foundation and is about to launch its second year-long statewide reporting initiative.
