What would your community do with a radio station?
In October 2013 community groups and nonprofits will have a one-time chance to apply for thousands of brand new community radio station licenses, including availability for the first time in major markets. These new non-commercial stations could feature diverse voices broadcasting independent local news, local music and arts, and compelling programming that is absent from the profit-driven airplay of corporate media.
The Community Impact Fund
Established in Augsut 2013, the Community Impact Fund seeks to ensure fulfillment of the Local Community Radio Act (LCRA) with the addition of hundreds of vibrant and sustainable community radio stations on the air. This revolving fund offers scholarships for station building services and an annual impact award. The goal for the fund is $50,000. You can contribute to fund here.
