We are using Newspack as our CMS developers, are we eligible for the grant in terms of being able to apply those funds against Newspack’s ongoing maintenance costs or do we have to identify new development costs to be eligible for the grant?

Would it be less competitive if we need funds for contracting out? We are have a database that is fine, but we need to build out the major donor tracking function. I think we need a specialist for that (i.e. we can’t do it ourselves.)

Are any of the reports or case studies from the successful applicants last year available?

Can the grant be used to have staff migrate content and assist the developer in designing the new site and moving it to a CMS?
Jill Kunishima
31:09
Great, thank you
Meg Waters
31:48
We just upgraded our CMS can this grant be used to reimburse us for the cost?
Jill Kunishima
32:50
This is really helpful! Thanks for doing this.
Andrew Phillips
33:25
We are also using Newspack as our CMS, as well. Could this grant be used for staff (or contractor) time to do the work of audience/revenue building, using existing software tools that we have? Or is it more geared toward building out new tools?
Madeleine Bair
33:51
Is there any expectation around the size of the organization or its audience for selected newsrooms?
Amanda Evrard
33:59
if we are upgrading to a newer version of the same CMS is that considered a migration or an improvement?
Terri House
34:15
Does anyone recommend other CMS systems for those of us who are living in a very antiquated world?
Frani Halperin/H2O Radio
34:15
Can you post the link to the blog to see strong applications from last year?
Trish Terrell
34:18
If we receive a grant but then realize we need different tools, can we adjust the scope of work and the budget post-award?
Andrew Phillips
34:26
That’s really helpful, thank you!
Teri Morrow
34:29
Will NRH help with advice to raise more $$ from our website?

Is the grant period flexible? Is it possible to back date the grant to when the decision/announcement is made? Or does it have to start in July?
Lupita Ruiz-Tolento
36:55
We are planning on releasing an in-depth resource guide for our community, and we want this to have its own website (but we’d be using the same CMS as we use for our original website). We see this as an enhancement/improvement, would we still be eligible?
Jill Kunishima
37:47
Many thanks! Gotta hop on another call, but I’ll keep an eye out.
Madeleine Bair
